The Africa Independent Television, AIT, and Raypower FM operations in Port Harcourt have been shut down by the Rivers State Government.
Announcing this on its official X on Sunday, the organization said the State Government shut down its operations through contracted telecommunications engineers who invaded their offices with armed security operatives.
“The contractors disconnected the wave guard from the antenna on the mast while riggers were seen dismantling the mast.
“Also, bulldozers were deployed to demolish the Transmitter Complex at DAAR Communications PLC Broadcast Centre,” it said.
The telecommunications’ contractor’s official told the organization that they were working on a directive from above to commence demolition on Sunday.
