African Independent Television (AIT), a station owned by DAAR Communications, has resumed operations.

DAILY POST checks confirmed that AIT can be viewed on DSTV Channel 253.

On Thursday, the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC), suspended the operating licenses of AIT and Ray Power.

However, earlier today, a Federal High Court in Abuja granted an order ex-parte for the maintenance of status quo pending the determination of a motion filed by DAAR Communications, in its challenging the action of the NBC.

Delivering his ruling on Friday, Justice Inyang Ekwo, rejected two prayers by DAAR Communication, owners of the two stations, for restraining orders against the respondents – NBC, Federal Ministry of Information and Culture (FMIC) and the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF).

DAAR Communications had, in the reliefs sought to restrain the respondents from interfering with its operations pending the determination of the motion on notice for interlocutory injunctions.

Instead, Justice Ekwo granted the alternative relief, “an order for the maintenance of status quo ante bellum as at 30th of May, , pending the hearing and final determination of the motion on notice filed along with this application.”

Justice Ekwo said the applicant, DAAR would be penalised should it turn out, at the end of the day, that the order ought not to have been made.

The noted that, by the issues raised in its application by DAAR Communications, the respondents deserved to be heard.

The judge ordered the respondents – NBC, FMIC, AGF – “to appear in court on the next date to show cause the prayers in the applicant’s motion should not be granted.”

Justice Ekwo adjourned further proceedings till June 13, 2019.
