Boko Haram: MTN caused death of over 10,000 Nigerians – Buhari alleges

President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday accused MTN of contributing to the death of 10 thousand innocent Nigerians by Boko Haram insurgents due to the slow registration of its mobile lines.

Buhari made the assertion during a joint press conference after a closed door meeting with South African President, Jacob Zuma at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The President while explaining the reason behind the fine imposed on the telecom giant said the concern of the Federal Government was purely security.

Buhari said, “This is the first time I will be personally as a president making a public comment about it. The concern of the federal government is basically on the security and not the fine imposed on MTN.

“You know how the unregistered GSM are being used by terrorists. And between 2009 and today, at least 10,000 Nigerians were killed by Boko Haram.

“That was why NCC asked MTN, Glo and the rest of them to register GSM. Unfortunately, MTN was very, very slow and contributed to the casualties.”
