MTN Nigeria has paid the second installment of N30 billion ($98 million) as part payment to the Federal Government, of the N330 billion fine imposed on it by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) for failing to disconnect about 5.1 million unregistered SIM cards.

The company, which was originally fined $5.2 billion (N1.04 trillion) in October 2015, had the NCC slash the fine to N330 billion, after consultations that lasted for over eight months. The NCC also agreed a staggered payment arrangement which will last till May 31, 2019.
