Lagosians ignore COVID-19 protocols, storm NIMC office in large number for NIN registration

Lagosians on Monday ignored the COVID-19 protocols and stormed the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) office in Alausa area of the state a bid to beat the two weeks deadline for integration of the National Identity Number (NIN) into Subscriber Identification Modules (SIMs).

The Federal Government had last week directed all to all mobile telecommunications operators in the country to block all SIMS without NIN registration after December 30.
