The National Identify Management Commission has denied reports that the database of the national identity number has been hacked.
NIMC’s spokesperson, Mr Kayode Adegoke, confirmed on Monday that there was no hacking of the NIMC database.
“It’s not possible. Not true,” he said.
The rumoured hacker, who is simply known as ‘Sam’ @_Sam0_0, has also refuted any claim of him hacking the national identity database.
He said, “Hi Guys, my recent post about open S3 bucket, I want to say that, that server is not from Nigeria’s government, it’s from @TecnoSRC and, there is company’s private data nothing else, and I’ve reported it straight after finding it, and @TechnoSRC just fixed it within hours.”
Earlier, Sahara Reporters had claimed that over three million NINs of Nigerians have been stolen after a hacker broke into the server of the NIMC.
