NCC strongly warned that such devices negatively affect the quality of experience while leaving their users vulnerable to losses and other discomforts.

A statement by NCC on Wednesday said the enforcement team arrested Yahaya Ado of Gezawa Communications Limited for selling counterfeit Gionee devices and not being able to show any evidence of authorisation granted to the company by the commission.  

Daily Trust reports that NCC’s Head of Enforcement, Mallam Salisu Abdu, who led the team, expressed concerns at how the GSM Market on Beirut Street, Kano, was awash with counterfeit and non-type approved phones.
