Live Sex: NCAC Files Petition Against #BBNaija

The federal government has lodged a complaint with the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) against live sex content during the ongoing fourth edition of Big Brother Naija (BBNaija), TheCable reports.

Segun Runsewe, director-general of the National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC), disclosed this during a visit by Gloria Shoda, president of the National Council of Women Societies (NCWS).

The development comes as Khafi, a housemate in the ongoing show and a serving police officer, is undergoing investigations by the London’s Metropolitan police service following claims that she had sex on the BBN reality show.

According to Runsewe, the NCAC would use the 2008 Nudity Bill, a proposed legislation to “punish and prohibit nudity, sexual intimidation and other-related offences in Nigeria” as its legal framework to fight such cases in 2020.

He said the federal government is working with Startimes, Chinese digital satellite TV, to introduce a modified version of the reality show.

“I will take up the issue of Big Brother Naija. I have spoken with officials of the National Broadcasting Commission because what is going on now is terrible. Having love affairs on screen is not part of our own culture at all,” he said.

“Let me use this forum to tell Nigerians that a new Big Brother Naija is on its way coming and we are working with Startimes. We are doing BBN that will reflect the true Nigerian culture. We are already working on it.”

In July, the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) had accused the organisers of BBNaija of encouraging immorality and asked the national assembly to put an end to it.
