The Emir of Nasarawa, HRH. Alhaji Ibrahim Usman Jibril has railed an alarm that criminals now use unidentified mobile numbers to threaten the lives of his subjects.
The Emir raised the alarm yesterday at the Consumer Conservation held At the ASUP Secretariat, Federal Polytechnic, Nasarawa State. The Emir who was represented at the occasion by Ibrahim Ladan said his subjects were under serious threats by criminal elements in the area who now use improperly registered Sim cards to threaten them and also extort ransom from their victims, warning that the matter has become an issue of public concern. He appealed to the Nigerian Communication’s Commission, NCC to expedite action in the ongoing verification of improperly registered Sim cards which have turned to a tool in the hands of criminals to make life miserable to innocent Nigerians. He also urged the Commission to design a system whereby any customer threatened will be able to call and trace the person that threatened their lines immediate and report to the police.
