NIN registration: NIMC clears air on breach of database

NIN registration: NIMC clears air on breach of database (Updated: 2 years ago)


The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has debunked reports that the database of the National Identity Numbers (NIN) has been breached.

NIMC spokesman, Kayode Adegoke, confirmed this in a statement on Wednesday.

The statement read in part, “The Commission investigated the data breach claim and found that the database schema presented by the adversary does not tally with the existing schema of NIMC records.

“The data being posted by criminals purporting to contain citizens’ information is fake.

“The NIMC would like to assure the public that there have been no such breaches or incidents.”

Last week, the Nigerian Communication Commission (NCC) ordered telecommunications companies to deactivate telephone lines of subscribers, who fail to link their NIN to their SIM cards.

However, the huge traffic to the NIMC web portal reportedly crashed the site on Monday.
