Warning for Nigerians selling their NIN, EFCC dished out what could happen


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has dished out warning for Nigerians selling their National Identification Number (NIN) for money.

Nearly all Nigerians are struggling to register their NIN, since the government announced in December 2020 that any mobile number phone subscriber without NIN will have their sim cards blocked in a matter of weeks.

EFCC on Thursday, January 7, 2021 warned that some fraudulent individuals are alluring enrollees to sell their NIN.

The anti-graft agency said the buyers are also selling the NIN to other buyers who are likely to use it for illegal means.

The EFCC said it is illegal for Nigerians to sell their NIN, and that they stand the risk of indirect liabilities for any criminal activity linked to their NIN.
