The statement reads,

“The Commission investigated the data breach claim and found out that the database schema presented by the adversary does not tally with the existing schema of NIMC records. The data being posted by criminals purporting to contain citizens’ information is fake.

“The NIMC would like to assure the public that there have been no such breaches or incidents. The NIMC guarantees the security of the National Identity Database through various layers of security and can assure that no data was breached.”
