NCC Orders Telcos to Block All Unregistered SIM Cards

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has given telecommunications companies in the country two weeks to block all unregistered SIM cards.

Bashir Ahmad, media aide to President Muhammadu Buhari, disclosed this in a tweet via his Twitter handle on Tuesday.

“The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has given telecommunications operators (MTN, Glo, Airtel, 9Mobile and others) in the country two weeks to block all SIM cards that are not registered with the National Identity Numbers (NIN), the Commission has said in a statement,” Ahmad tweeted.

This is coming less than a week after the NCC had ordered telecommunications companies to stop the sale and activation of Subscriber Identification Module (SIM).

NCC warned that non-compliance by network operators could lead to withdrawal of operating license.
