Senator, Ben Murray-Bruce has brought his broadcasting companies back on air after brief break in transmission following a bold attempt by Asset Management Company of Nigeria (AMCON) to seize his properties over N11 billion debt. Rhythm FM and Silverbird Television have resumed operation.
The electronic media platforms owned by the family of Murray Bruce went off air on Thursday after officials of AMCON sealed off the company’s buildings in Abuja, Lagos and Port Harcourt.
On Friday, the management of Silverbird communications issued a statement announcing that its radio and TV stations had resumed operation.
