Furthermore, the NCC has banned the aforementioned mobile operators from selling SIM cards in March, which, in the country with almost 170 million people, could be damaging for the companies’ business.

In their statement, the NCC said Globacom, owned by Nigerian billionaire Mike Adenuga, was fined 277.5 million naira. South Africa’s MTN and Airtel, owned by India’s Bharti Airtel, were each fined 185 million naira.
