The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has issued another warning to Nigerians against enabling extortion during the enrolment process of their National Identification Number, NIN.

This was contained in a statement signed by Kayode Adegoke, Head of Corporate Communications of NIMC on Wednesday.

NIMC warned that it would not condone corrupt acts that would tarnish its image.

According to the statement, the Director-General/CEO of NIMC, Engr. Aliyu Aziz, gave the warning while declaring that the commission has zero tolerance for corruption, fraudulent activities in the process of enrolment and other activities.


He said: ”The Commission, recently, suspended some staff and terminated the appointment of a few others who engaged in acts of extortion and unwholesome practices detrimental to its values.

“We call on the general public to desist from being enablers of extortion as it would not condone any act capable of destroying its hard-earned integrity.

“Remember, enrolment for the National Identification Number (NIN) is free.”


NIMC also urged the general public to report any form of extortion and unwholesome practices through its official platforms by calling 08157691214; 09134959433; send e-mail to; or lodge complaints via its website-
