NCC deactivates 2.2m improperly-registered SIM cards

About 2.2million improperly-registered SIM cards have been deactivated by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), the Commission’s Executive Vice Chairman, Prof Umar Garba Danbatta, has said.

Danbatta, who disclosed this at the weekend in Abuja, said the deactivation of anonymous SIM cards was in line with one of the key agenda of President Muhammadu Buhari to strengthen security of lives and property of all Nigerians.

“By our records, all improperly-registered Subscriber Identification Module (SIM) cards across Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) in Nigeria have been completely deactivated,” he said.
