The general public is advised to beware of fake accounts on social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, etc.) set up by individuals, misleading users into thinking they are official NIMC accounts or linked officially to NIMC.
Do not give out your NIN or sensitive details to these fake accounts nor use the contact details provided by these accounts to do so.
Links to the official NIMC social media profiles as well as contact information can be found on the NIMC website – www.nimc.gov.ng .
