NCC raids Enugu pirates hideouts, arrests five, recovers N30m

The Nigeria Copyrights Commission has raided 10 pirate locations in Enugu State, arrested three suspects, and recovered contrivances worth N30 million.

The NCC said on Saturday, in Enugu, that the raid followed a complaint from cable network

providers such as Multi-choice Nigeria.

Two teams of copyrights inspectors and 20 Anti-terrorism Unit officers embarked on the

enforcement action within Enugu metropolis.

In another development, the Commission also carried out a raid at E-Line in Ogbete Market,

Enugu on some shops selling various types of “dongles” which are mainly used for piracy.

This resulted in the arrest of two persons and recovery of items such as Q-Sats and A-Z Skys were confiscated.

South-East Zonal Manager of the NCC, Mrs. Ngozi Okeke, said the recent enforcement actions were in continuation of the war against piracy, which the Commission has been waging over the years.

“This war has been intensified since assumption of office of our present Director

General, Mr. Afam Ezekude, in the last few years and it is continuing,” Okeke

said.
