Earlier on Thursday, some unconfirmed reports had it that two journalists working with Channels Television were allegedly arrested by the DSS over a recent interview on President Muhammadu Buhari.

The reports of the arrest came on the heel of a query issued to Channels TV by the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) over a recent interview he had with governor of Benue state, Samuel Ortom.
