Nigerian Minister of information and culture, Lai Mohammed has reportedly asked the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission (NBC) to shut down the ongoing Big Brother Naija BBNaija season 5 over fears that it might escalate cases of the coronavirus.

According to TheCable, the acting director-general of the NBC, Armstrong Idachaba, told senior management members that he had been directed by Lai Mohammed to shut down the BBNaija show due to possible spread of COVID-19 among housemates.

However, insiders told TheCable that the NBC management was not well disposed to the move to shut down Big Brother Naija, with some of them saying there was no basis for it.

There are reports that MultiChoice Ltd, the producers of the reality, had explained to the NBS that it has secured the approval of the Lagos State Safety Commission (LSSC) having promised housemates and the organizing crew will strictly obey all the safety protocols against COVID-19.
