How to turn off call forwarding on any Nigeria SIM networks
I’ve been dealing with the call forwarding notice problem that appears on my phone’s screen every time I try to make a call using my MTN, Airtel, or Glo SIM cards for about a year now. I once mistakenly believed that I had accidentally turned on the call forwarding feature on my SIM cards, but I’ve since come to understand that it was either someone, I had previously given my phone to who had done so covertly, or I was being watched by a Nigerian security agent for reasons only they would know.
The reality is that many Nigerians are now struggling with this problem without understanding how to solve it. Many people may have tried all the phone settings, like I did, in an effort to disable call forwarding without success. Most of the time, your phone’s settings are not the answer. On any Nigerian SIM network, call forwarding may be permanently disabled by calling a short USSD code.
If you reside in Nigeria and every time you attempt to make a call, you receive a “call redirected” message. Don’t disregard this. It’s possible that someone or a group is keeping an eye on your calls, texts, and faxes. By following the easy procedures below, you may check and confirm that your phone communications are not being monitored even if you don’t get any of these messages.
Remember that call forwarding here does not indicate that calls will be sent to a different number instead of the one you intended (this can simply be set up from your CALL SETTINGS on your phone). What I’m trying to say is that if you contact John and he answers, James (a third party) will also be listening in on your chats with John on either their computer or phone, without your knowledge.
How to determine whether your calls, texts, and faxes are forwarded

Just dial *#61# on your phone to see if call forwarding is enabled on your SIM cards. Once the code has been entered, a pop-up notification will inform you whether or not your calls, messages, and faxes have been forwarded. The notification will still display the phone number to which such calls are sent if call forwarding is enabled.
