Just after the killings of peaceful protesters at Lekki, angry mobs invaded TVC premises and set cars and other properties on fire on Wednesday morning, October 21.
TVC is owned by former governor of the state, Bola Tinubu, who is a national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
A staff of TVC, Morayo Afolabi-Brown, confirmed the news in an Instagram Live update.
Morayo Afolabi-Brown who hosts the programme, Your View said: “Yes, I can confirm it. Cars within the compound are already on fire and parts of the station are in flames. Our popular morning programme “Your View” that was ongoing before the attack is already off air. Please pray for our colleagues who are trapped and taking cover in the compound,”
Reports also say that the station was temporary off air as a result of the attack.
