In 1993, the Committee to Protect Journalists presented Igiebor their International Press Freedom Award,”an annual recognition of courageous journalism”. Bill Orme, an editor of CPJ, commented: “What distinguished Nosa is that he is still producing and his organisation (Tell) is still reporting the news in a very lively and combative way”.
In 1998, Nosa Igiebor and the staff of Tell magazine as a whole were awarded the Special Award for Human Rights Journalism Under Threat at the Amnesty International UK Media Awards. The award’s notice stated; “Tell has continued to publish throughout the period of Nigerian dictatorship despite intimidation, harassment and the detention without charge or trial of Mr Igiebor and other senior members of the Tell staff.”
