Revealed! Satellite phone service providers fingered on Nigeria’s Californium scam - ITREALMS

ITREALMS ... making leadership SENSE with digital news!

Satellite telecommunications service providers have been accused of aiding and abetting the unending insecurity situation in the Nigeria’s North-East due to vested interest in their offering, reports ITREALMS.
These satellite telecoms service providers, according to a retired military intelligence officer, offer services to some fraudulent californium precious stone explorers under the guise of international Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) who deploy their services without regulatory stress from any sovereign country.

Making these accusation, the Action Alliance (AA) Presidential candidate in the 2023 general elections, retired Major Hamza Al-Mustapha alleged that some international NGOs have been illegally exploring californium, a precious stone found in Borno State-Nigeria.

Speaking as the guest of Brekete Family recently in Abuja, Al-Mustapha accused satellite telecoms service providers of conniving with the some state actors, especially at the Federal and state levels to exploit the californium precious stones in Nigeria under pretense of international NGO.

These NGOs, he said, came with satellite telephones and personal computers that connect via the satellite too.

Al-Mustapha, insisted that these NGOs, leave late in the night to go to the Californium sites and where soldiers and police dread to go during the day time, wondering who is providing cover for them during this period.

He called on the Federal Ministry of Health to take a critical look on why there is increase in cancer and kidney cases in the North-East and Borno State precisely.

Al-Mustapha also accused the Federal Government of ineptitude and international satellite companies of high-level complacency on the issue of insecurity in the North East.

ITREALMS gathered that globally, these NGOs use the services of international companies offering satellite telecommunications services such as Thuraya satellite phones to name a few.

Also, ITREALMS gathered that Californium is worth $27 million per gram, about N12,040,920,000.00 billion.

Satellite phone systems could be classified into two types, namely the systems that use satellites in a high geostationary orbit, 35,786 kilometres (22,236 mi) above the earth's surface, and systems that use satellites in low Earth orbit (LEO), 640 to 1,120 kilometers (400 to 700 miles) above the earth.

Traditionally, cell phones rely on cell towers, unlike satellite phones that work anywhere on earth. Once you leave the city, satellite networks are the only networks offering reliable communication. So, there are satellite phones that work anywhere, even in the most remote areas of the world.
