Pre-registered SIM card poses security threat to Nigeria, says IGP
The Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Kpotun Idris, has described the sale and use of pre-registered SIM card as a severe threat to security sector and governance.
He stated this, yesterday, at the one-day sensitisation workshop for law enforcement agencies in the northeast zone on telecommunications issues, organised by Nigeria Communications Commission (NCC) in Gombe.
He said: “These criminal activities, including use of pre-registration subscriber identification module SIM cards should be of concern to all of us. As a law enforcement officer, it is my belief that in addressing these challenges, we must re-strategise on our noble programme of community policing across communities and give our communities greater stake in securing national assets.”
