The Enforcement Unit of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) yesterday stormed the Ikoyi area of Lagos to clamp down on organisations in four locations, whose installations have been causing network interferences to service delivery on 9mobile network. In the enforcement action, a bank with the name Page Microfinance Bank, GMT Energy Resources, Club 57 and a property on No 61, Ademola Street, Ikoyi were found as culprits creating the problem in the area.
However, while four locations were found by the enforcement team, only the first three were tracked as the team could not access the premises of the fourth location on No. 61, Ademola Street in Ikoyi.
The NCC’ raid, followed complaints received from 9mobile in respect of frequency interference it was having in its network, which has subjected a number of corporate and individual customers of the 9mobile to contending with debilitating service delivery on the mobile network.
Addressing the media after the enforcement exercise that lasted for hours, Head of Enforcement Unit at NCC, Mr. Salisu Abdu, who led the team from Abuja, said after a thorough search, the team was able to localise the culprits causing the network interference to the four locations. “We are in Lagos today in respect of a compliant we received from 9mobile 9mobile in respect of a frequency interference they are having in their network.
