The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has alerted Nigerians over the sales of the National Identity Number (NIN) to those it called “unscrupulous persons whose motives are anything but noble.”

The EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, in a statement, said: “The EFCC wishes to alert Nigerians that it is not only illegal to sell their NIN, they stand the risk of vicarious liability for any act of criminality linked to their NIN.

“In other words, they risk arrest and prosecution for any act of criminality linked to their NIN whether or not they are directly responsible for such crimes.”

The commission warned members of the public against selling their NIN, advising them to report anyone seeking to buy the facility to the nearest office of the EFCC or other law enforcement agencies.
