A Nigerian private radio station, Jay 101.9 FM, Jos, says it has lost "millions of naira" in revenue since local authorities shut it down on March 1, 2019.

The station Manager, Mr. Mangna Wamyil told MKB on Wednesday that the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission was expected to compensate for the loss.

The Plateau state based station had sued the regulatory body, seeking a N500,000 relief from the regulatory body.

It was closed down few days to the country's general elections over "partisan and inflammatory broadcast."

The station was however reopened on Tuesday, 10 weeks later after a court order.

"This is part of ongoing settlement between Jay FM and NBC, in the suit we filed at the Federal High Court Jos challenging the March 1st, 2019 shutdown of the Station by NBC," an official statement signed by the station Manager says.

It is however the first step to resolving the feud between the two bodies.

"Since the station has been opened, the first prayer has been determined, what we are in court now for is for the court adjourn the matter to allow for further negotiations of the other prayers," Mr. Wamyil told MKB.
