The National Identity Management Commission has advised Nigerians to avoid sharing their National Identification Number with unauthorised persons .
In a statement issued on its official Twitter handle , NIMC said that the NIN when shared wrongly could be used to “ perpetrate fraud” against the owner .
“ Your NIN is your digital identity and you will be held liable for offences committed by individuals with sim cards linked to your NIN , ” NIMC said .
The commission advised that persons engaged in such fraudulent acts should be reported to the National Identity Management Commission .The registration for NIN commenced , a few days ago, after a Federal Government directive mandated telecommunications to suspend sim cards not linked to NIN .
