Telcoms service blackout imminent in Abuja, nine states
A possible blackout of telecommunication services is imminent in Abuja and nine other states.
This is following the forceful closure of some telecom sites by Kogi State government.
The Association of Licensed Telecommunications Operators of Nigeria (ALTON) Chairman, Gbenga Adebayo, who raised the issue today, listed other states to be affected to include Ekiti, Kwara etc.
All the operators are affected.
The Kogi State is said to be demanding excess taxes from the operators and because they were yet to comply the sites were shut down.
As at Sunday, the closure had affected 70 sites, but rose to Monday morning.
More details later.
