Subscribers not required to submit IMEI number ― NCC


The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has said that subscribers are not required to submit their International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) numbers for now.

It added that the Commission is in the process of deploying a Device Management System to protect subscribers against phone theft and other sundry offences associated with mobile telecommunications.

The Director of Public Affairs of the NCC, Dr Ikechukwu Adinde said this in a statement.

The statement reads: “the attention of the Nigerian Communications Commission has been drawn to several media publications to the effect that the Commission will require Nigerians to submit the International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) of their phones to it from July, 2021.

“At no time did the Commission issue a statement regarding the registration of IMEI by subscribers and it has no plans to do so.

“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.

“The general public is advised to disregard the said publications, which have created the erroneous impression that telephone subscribers will be required to register their IMEI with their networks.”

Local emergency declared as California battles devastating wildfires – The Maravi Post

Published

A major Southern California highway remained closed Wednesday and evacuation orders were in place from a growing blaze driven by intense winds that raised the risk of wildfires in much of the state. More than 200 firefighters battled the Alisal Fire, which covered 21 square miles (54 square kilometers) along coastal Santa Barbara County and was only 5% contained, county fire officials said. The fire erupted Monday on a ridge and swept toward the ocean, forcing the closure of U.S. 101, the only major highway on that section of the coast. Evacuation orders and warnings were in place for ranches and several rural communities of the lightly populated region. While the area was lightly populated, the blaze threatened more than 100 homes, ranches and other buildings, fire officials said. Santa Barbara County Fire Department Captain Daniel Bertucelli said the land conditions and the weather are combining to make things very difficult for firefighters. The fire was burning a few miles from near Rancho del Cielo, which was once owned by Ronald and Nancy Reagan and was known as the Western White House during his presidency. Fire crews were protecting the ranch where Reagan hosted world leaders. The Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday declared a local emergency and asked Gov. Gavin Newsom to declare a state of emergency that would free up state resources for firefighters and evacuees. In Northern California, fire crews increased containment of a blaze that destroyed 25 mobile homes, 16 RVs and a park building at the Rancho Marina RV Park in Sacramento County. No injuries were reported, and the cause remained under investigation. Aerial video of the scene, recorded from a drone, shows numerous foundations where mobile homes stood just a few days ago. The fierce windy weather that powered the Brannan Fire on Monday was expected to subside in northern and central California. But red flag warnings for extreme fire danger will return Thursday.
