The website asked Nigerians to apply for free Internet by clicking a web link , which automatically led to a webpage with a dialogue box where they were expected to fill in their bio data and other demographics .

The commission said , “ NCC wishes to state categorically that neither the Nigerian government nor the commission has issued such a message to Nigerian citizens.
