The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) on Tuesday said the country’s identity database was not breached by hackers as claimed by social media users.

NIMC Director-General, Aliyu Aziz, in a statement by the spokesman of the commission, Kayode Adegoke, said the servers were fully optimised at the highest international security levels as the custodian of the most important national database for Nigeria.

According to him, the commission, as the custodian of the foundational identity database for Africa’s most populous nation, has gone to great lengths to ensure the nation’s database is adequately secured and protected especially given the spate of cyber-attacks on networks across the world.

“Over the years, through painstaking efforts, NIMC has built a robust and credible system for Nigeria’s identity database,” he said.
