The National Communications Authority (NCA) has announced the shutting down of four radio stations in the Upper East Regional capital, Bawku.

This comes on the back of the recommendations of the Upper East Regional Security Council, and on the advice of the Ministry of National Security that “the operations of the said FM Stations and the incendiary utterances of their panellists/presenters have contributed to the escalation of the Bawku conflict, leading to loss of lives and property in Bawku and its environs,” the NCA revealed in a statement.

The NCA indicated that it will continue to work with “all relevant stakeholders to execute its mandate as set out by law and calls on stakeholders to adhere to the tenets and regulations governing the communications industry.”

The stations which were shut down on Saturday, 24 February 2024 include: “Bawku FM, Source FM, Zahra FM and Gumah FM.”
