The Rivers State Signage and Advertisement Agency (RISAA) has shut down an electronic billboard which showed 60 seconds pornograhic video in the Garrison area of Port Harcourt on Thursday.
Two staff of E-Motion Communications Nigeria Ltd, owners of the LED billboard, have also been arrested.
Speaking during a press briefing on Friday morning, at the Garrison Junction where the billboard is situated, the Managing Director of RISAA, Hon. Anthony Okea, frowned at “the unprofessional display of obscene pornographic video by an outdoor practitioner on their LED billboard at Garrison,”
Okeah said that the billboard is now shut downed by the agency as authorized by the laws and some suspects have been taken into custody as investigation continues to ascertain the real motive behind their irresponsible act.
He further explained that RISAA is not responsible for the regulations of contents on billboards, adding that it is the sole responsibility of APCON.
