The Federal Executive Council (FEC), on Wednesday, approved the deployment of hybrid spectrum monitoring system targeting illegal frequencies in the southeastern zone of the country.
Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Pantami unveiled the decision of the council while briefing newsmen at the end of the meeting.
The meeting was presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Patani said that investigation had shown that the use of illegal frequencies in the country has become very rampant.
According to him, “from January to August 2020, within the period of eight months, we discovered 320 frequencies being used all over the country and of this 320, 106 were illegal.”
He added: “This is very worrisome because the usage of this illegal spectrum or frequencies will compromise our security and safety in the country.”
