The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) will begin the registration process of all GSM-enabled SIM cards in March 2010, the African Press Agency reports. According to Lolia Emakpore, the director of the regulator’s Consumer Affairs Bureau, the process will start simultaneously in the six geopolitical zones of Nigeria and subscribers will have six months to register their details free of charge or face having their service disconnected. She added that the move will help curb crime perpetrated via mobile phones, such as fraud.
