The federal government has directed the National Broadcasting
Commission (NBC) to investigate the circumstances surrounding the
reported shooting in South Africa of the ongoing Big Brother Nigeria
reality show.
Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has asked
the NBC to determine whether Multi-Choice has breached the Nigerian
Broadcasting Code in any way, by shooting the show in South Africa, 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,” Mohammed said in a statement on Tuesday.
Mohammed noted while concerned Nigerians have bombarded his office
with calls to complain about what they regard as an anomaly – shooting
outside the country a show meant for Nigerians, he urged them to remain
calm while the NBC investigates the issue and submits its findings.
