The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has addressed rumours that mobile subscribers will be obliged to provide the international mobile equipment identity (IMEI) of their phones to them starting in July 2021.

 

Ikechukwu Adinde, the NCC’s director of public affairs, said in a statement on Friday that the commission has never published a statement regarding the registration of IMEI by subscribers and has no plans to do so.

“The claims in question are based on a section of President Muhammadu Buhari’s newly published Revised National Identity Policy for SIM Card Registration, which has been uploaded to the Commission’s website,” the statement stated.

 

“It is important to note that the Commission is currently implementing a Device Management System (DMS). The DMS will effectively safeguard consumers from phone theft while also detecting and removing fraudulent devices from networks. Subscribers will not be required to input their IMEI because the system will record it automatically.”

 

Adinde urged the general public to ignore the aforementioned publications, which gave the false impression that phone subscribers would be obliged to register their IMEI with their networks.
