The National Communications Commission (NCC) has refuted a social media story claiming that the commission had ordered telecom service providers to shut down their services in Katsina state.

Alhaji Abdu Labaran, the Director-General (DG) media to Gov. Aminu Masari disclosed this in a statement issued to newsmen on Monday, in Katsina.

The DG added that the Executive Vice Chairman/CEO of the NCC, Prof. Umar Danbatta, who spoke to the state government, dismissed the story as false.

“He added that the purported letter trending on social media was a cloned version of the one sent to Zamfara State,” he said.

The NCC had in a recent letter ordered a total shutdown of telecom sites in Zamfara state, in reaction to the lingering security challenges.

According to Labaran, Danbatta had advised that the trending news suggesting a similar action would be effected in Katsina state should be disregarded, as it did not emanate from the commission.
