Subscribers not required to submit phone IDs, it’s automatic – NCC

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has made a clarification on the submission of the international mobile equipment identity (IMEI) which is expected to take off in July.


NCC’s director of public affairs, Ikechukwu Adinde who made the clarification stated that the commission has no plan of registration of IMEI by subscribers.


Adinde disclosed that the system will capture IMEI automatically without any requirement for subscribers to submit same.


He said;


“The reports in question have emanated from a section of the Revised National Identity Policy for SIM Card Registration recently launched by President Muhammadu Buhari and which has been uploaded on the Commission’s website.

“It is pertinent to state that the Commission is in the process of deploying a Device Management System (DMS). The DMS will essentially protect subscribers against phone theft and will identify and enable the elimination of fake devices from the networks. The system will capture IMEI automatically without any requirement for subscribers to submit same.”
