OFCOM was forced to fine the Pastor Chris Oyahkilome owned Loveworld Television Network after it broadcast inaccurate news about coronavirus outbreak for the second time within a year. OFCOM consider the repeated inaccurate report on Coronavirus as harmful, serious and unprofessional which warranted the sanction.

In its finding, OFCOM fined Oyakhilome’s Love World Network for claiming that the pandemic is a “planned” event created by the “deep state” for nefarious purposes, and that the vaccine is a “sinister” means of administering “nanochips” to control and harm people.

Some statements claimed that “fraudulent” testing had been carried out to deceive the general public about the existence of the virus and the scale of the pandemic. Others linked the cause of Covid-19 to the rollout of 5G technology.

However, the inaccurate and potentially harmful claims made during this programme were unsupported by any factual evidence and went entirely without challenge” according to OFCOM.
