Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to urgently direct Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, to withdraw the threat to sanction the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) and Daily Trust over their reported documentaries on terrorism in Nigeria.

The minister had, last Thursday, stated that the Federal Government would sanction the organisations for promoting insurgency via their media platforms.

In a letter dated July 30, 2022 and signed by its deputy director, Kolawole Oluwadare, SERAP restated that the media has the duty to disseminate information of public importance.
