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.

“The Commission further advised people to protect their data and stop disclosing personal information to unauthorised persons or platforms.”

This was according to the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Pantami, who spoke during an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today programme.
