Bandits Expose SIM-NIN linkage failure, police unable to track gunmen

Bandits Expose SIM-NIN linkage failure, police unable to track gunmen 

Kidnapped victims on Monday explained how bandits had been thwarting the Federal Government’s security regulations in the telecommunications sector.

Residents of Katsina, Zamfara and Kaduna states,  who recounted their experiences in kidnappers’ den, told our correspondents that they made the bandits’ telephone numbers available to security agents.

They, however, lamented that nothing was done to apprehend the hoodlums, thus making a mess of the Federal Government’s directives on registration of telephone subscribers and the linkage of SIM with the National Identification Number.

In  Zamfara  State, a kidnap victim, said security agents in his village, Jangeme, did nothing to trace the telephone calls of the bandits who kidnapped him. Jangeme said bandits a few months ago kidnapped seven people in his village and he was contacted to bring ransom  before they could be freed.

According to him, when he got to the forest to give the kidnappers N1.4m out of N3m they demanded, they detained him, saying he must bring the remaining N1.6m.
The victim stressed that nothing was done to help or assist him. And the security operatives were fully aware of what happened to him and others.
