The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has warned Nigerians to stay away from a fake app that claims to help link the National Identity Number (NIN) to SIM cards.

NIMC, in a Twitter post on Monday, dissociated itself from the app.

The agency claims the app is run by fraudsters who use it to harvest NIN and Bank Verification Number (BVN).

“The app was not created by NIMC or the Federal Government of Nigeria. It is run by fraudsters who are currently harvesting people’s NINs and BVNs by default,” NIMC said.
