The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) will probe the circumstances surrounding the reported shooting in South Africa of the ongoing Big Brother Naija Reality TV Show.
Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed gave the order in Abuja.
In a statement in Abuja on Tuesday, the Minister said the NBC should determine whether Multi-Choice, by shooting the show in South Africa, has breached the Nigerian Broadcasting Code in any way, as well as the issue of possible deceit, since the viewing public was never told that the event would be staged outside Nigeria.
”As a country of laws, only the outcome of the investigation will determine our next line of action,” he said.
Alhaji Mohammed said concerned Nigerians have bombarded his office with calls to complain about what they regard as an anomaly of shooting outside the country a show meant for Nigerians.
He urged the concerned Nigerians to remain calm while the NBC investigates the issue and submits its findings.
