In an effort to shield customers from losses and other inconveniences, the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has imposed sanctions on vendors of quasi and counterfeit equipment.
The commission issued a warning to Nigerians against using and patronizing such devices when it was arresting leaders of three companies in Kano State. According to the agency, these devices are primarily responsible for the poor service experiences. The Nigerian Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC) was put in charge of the offenders so that further investigation and necessary action could be taken.
Here are some of the list of branded phones recovered from the arrested vendors: Gionee phones with model numbers G800, and L990; H-Mobile phones with model numbers it5606+, H351; FoxKong with model numbers F30, F300; and KGTEL phones with model numbers K2160 and KG1100.
The commission declared that it is committed to performing post-enforcement inspections to guarantee that the sale of counterfeit devices is halted. The NCC will work with market associations to make sure that sellers have the proper licenses and to aid in the capture of the main suppliers and distributors of fake devices.
