The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has on Wednesday reportedly sealed Nokia Office located in Lekki, Lagos over illegal operations.

According to the Head of Enforcement Unit, NCC, Mr. Salisu Abdul, the company has been operating without having license for several years.
He said that the Nokia office would have obtained the sale and installation license which costs N2 million.

Mr. Salisu said "Basically, we have decide to seal off the premises of Nokia until it obtains the requisite authorisation."
"The Nigerian Communication Commission (NCC) is the sole regulator of the telecom sector in Nigeria and one of our functions is the issuance of telecom licenses."
"It is criminal for any service provider to operate in the country without license. We have sealed the office until they comply."
