Following allegations of exposure of sensitive data of citizens, the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has assured the public that the data of Nigerians has not been compromised.

NIMC gave the assurance in a statement signed by its head of corporate communications, Kayode Adegoke, on Saturday.

Paradigm Initiative, a pan-African social enterprise, had on Thursday raised an alarm over its discovery of the sale of national identification numbers (NINs), bank verification numbers (BVNs), and other personal data of Nigerians on a website for as low as N100.

The organisation claimed that a website known as ‘’ was found to be involved in the commercial distribution of personal and private data of Nigerians.

It noted that several unauthorised websites claim to hold and provide access to sensitive personal and financial data of Nigerian citizens “for as little as 100 Naira”.
