Cyber cafes in Nigeria will have to register details of their users in a move to curb cyber crime in Africa’s most populous nation.
This notice by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) is asking cyber cafe owners and operators to register and maintain a database of users of their services.
The notice was signed by NCC Director of Public Affairs, Tony Ojobo.
The notice says the regulator has noticed the increasing rate of cyber crime in the country, and more of it is committed through users of cyber cafes making it harder for the regulator to carry out investigations.
Cyber café operators will therefore have to start register users full names, physical addresses, telephone numbers, take their passport photos and telephone numbers.
