The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) yesterday pledged to deploy the requisite technology that will enable the tracking of subscriber identity module (SIM) boxes used to perpetuate the fraud of call masking and refilling.
This is just as the House of Representatives Committee on Financial Crimes expressed satisfaction with the measures so far taken by the regulator to tackle the menace in the country.
Speaking while leading other members of the committee to a high-level meeting at the Headquarters of the Commission yesterday in Abuja, the Chairman, Hon Kayode Oladele, expressed concerns on the dangers call masking portends in the country.
“Within a very short time, we are impressed by the responses and I wish Nigerians could be told about what we have done here today. Many people feel that nothing has been done whereas so much has been done, except that if you ask me what we have achieved today, I will say that I am leaving here more confused because the problem is bigger than what we thought,” Oladele said.
