Probe shooting of Big Brother Naija in South Africa – Lai Mohammed

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has directed the National Broadcasting Commission to investigate the circumstances surrounding the reported shooting in South Africa of the ongoing Big Brother Naija Reality show.

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,” the minister said in the statement.

Mohammed said while concerned Nigerians had bombarded his office with calls to complain about what they regard as an anomaly (of shooting outside the country a show meant for Nigerians), they should remain calm while the NBC investigates the issue and submits its findings
