Human rights activist Omoyele Sowore and some Nigerian broadcasters have stormed the headquarters of the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC), Abuja over the query issued to Channels Television for interviewing Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State.

The NBC has also summoned presenters of the TV station, Chamberlain Usoh and Kayode Okikiolu to its office in Abuja for questioning.

The presenters who are the major anchors of the TV’s ‘Sunrise Daily’ breakfast programme were invited to the Abuja office of the agency on Thursday over some comments made against President Muhammadu Buhari by two guests during the programme on Tuesday.
