Telecoms Giant MTN Pays Half of Nigeria's Hefty Fine

The Nigerian Communications Commission has said that South African company MTN has paid U.S.$458 million towards the fine imposed by the Nigeria government in October 2015 for non compliance with a directive on the deactivation of unregistered SIM cards, which it said were largely being used by terrorist group Boko Haram in the plotting of attacks around Nigeria.
