The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has shut down Globacom (Glo) base station in Wuse 2 Abuja over a N4.7bn debt.
A telecom base station is a transmission and reception station in a fixed location, consisting of one or more receive/transmit antenna, microwave dish, and electronic circuitry, used to handle cellular traffic.
The exercise was led by Capt. Musa Nuhu, the director-general of the NCAA, and was supervised by Sen. Hadi Sirika, the minister of Aviation.
Nuhu explained that the shutdown will continue on a number of Glo’s Main Switch Centres (MSC) across the country until the telecom company commits to a payment schedule.
