Lai Mohammed
, minister of information and culture, has kicked against the airing of Big Brother Naija (BBN) and asked the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission (NBC) to take down the program, with the increasing spread of COVID-19 in the country.

 

The fifth edition of the show which commenced on Sunday is one of the most watched programmes on cable TV in Nigeria.

 

On Wednesday, Armstrong Idachaba, acting director-general of the NBC, told senior management members that the minister had directed him to shut down the show.

 

He said the Minister instructed the commission to use fears of spread of COVID-19 as the reason, while citing directives from the presidential task force (PTF).

 

All housemates went through a mandatory two-week isolation during which COVID-19 symptoms would have manifested if they had the disease.
