NCC to begin prosecution of pre-registered SIM cards hawkers

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) yesterday warned that the full weight of the law would be visited on those hawking pre-registered SIM cards in spite of the raids carried out by the commission this year.

NCC’s Executive Commissioner, Stakeholders Management Mr. Sunday Dare, who sounded the warning, insisted that those selling and buying pre-registered SIM cards were breaking the law.

Dare, who spoke with The Nation on the monitoring of compliance and enforcement of SIM Registration activities by NCC, maintained that imposition of sanctions on perpetrators of illegal activities would continue.
He said prosecution of offenders would be stepped up in a final push to curb the menace because of its security implications.
