The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has ordered the immediate shut down of DAAR Communications, Operators of African Independent Television (AIT) and Silverbird Television among others.
This followed the revocation of their operating license by the Commission over outstanding fees.
The Commission, however, gave the affected broadcast organisations a 24-hour grace to effect complete payment of the outstanding fees or shutdown.
Already, a detachment of security operatives has been dispatched to enforce the NBC Order.
NBC said all affected broadcast organisations would be operating illegally if they fail to make necessary payments within the grace period.
“They are to shut down within the period of 24 hours”, NBC ordered.
