It is unclear what ensued in the office of a service provider but the subsequent events raised eyebrows, per a viral video.
Eye witnesses were taken aback when the young man on leaving the office stripped naked and crossed the busy road with a bottle of what looked like alcohol in hand.
On reaching the middle of the road, he raised the bottle high, chanted incantations in anger, and crossed back to the office’s car park where his vehicle was and dressed up.
The issue of inhuman treatment of customers by Telecom providers is raising concern in many developing countries; thus causing human right bodies to intervene.
In Ghana the Vice President of IMANI Selorm Branttie said government is to ensure that affected users are compensated “for the damage that it has caused them.”
He made these comments in a television Morning Show on Friday.
The National Communication Authority (NCA) has directed telecommunication companies to begin blocking mobile telephone services to unregistered SIM card users ahead of the the period when its deadline elapses.
According to a statement signed by the Authority’s Director-General, outgoing calls and data services for a sequential batch of numbers will be blocked for 2 days weekly on a rotational basis.
“MNOs [Mobile Network Operators] shall divide the unregistered SIMs into five batches for the purpose of implementing this punitive measure.
“These measures shall exclude blocking of SMS to give defaulting subscribers the opportunity to initiate registration if they so wish.
“Subscribers who fully register their SIM Cards within the period they have been blocked will only be unblocked by the MNOs after 48 hours to avoid the MNOs tampering with their systems intermittently,” parts of the statement read.
