The National Communications Authority (NCA) has shut down Tamale-based Tongu Radio over “national security concerns”.

The action by the regulator, according to a statement, is in accordance with Section 13 (1) (e) of the Electronic Communications Act, 2008, Act (775).

“The Authority may suspend or revoke a license or a frequency authorisation where the suspension or revocation is necessary because of national security or is in the public interest,” the statement said.

Last year, Director of the radio station, Bestway Zottor was arrested for allegedly promoting the agenda of the Homeland Study Group Foundation.
