How To Unblock/Unbar Your MTN, Glo, Airtel, Or Etisalat Line That Was Barred Due To Incomplete Registration

Since NCC has given approval to major telecom operators in the country to block unregistered numbers or lines that have not been properly registered, MTN, Glo, Airtel, and Etisalat/9mobile have since embarked on the massive blocking numbers of sim registration failure. In fact, it was for those who failed to comply with this request from NCC which made them fine MTN recently for having more users with failed sim registration.
Many people have complained that their lines have been recently banned by these network operators.
