The Senate has revealed that it will soon commence investigations into the alleged misappropriation of over N1.2 billion by the leadership of the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC).

Senator Dino Melaye, who made the allegation, claimed that the said amount was generated through the sale of sector boxes and spectrums.

He said the money was spent without any approval by the Senate, despite its annual budgetary allocation.

Melaye who is battling the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) over a recall process by his constituency, said that the money was spent on local and foreign trips, training, refreshment, fueling of power generating sets, among others. The main motion will be brought formally next week.
