"Nigeria's authorities have been forced to reassure the public that a mobile phone number cannot kill, after rumours were spread by text messages. Viral text messages had warned that several people had died when they answered calls with the ID 09141. The regulatory body, the Nigerian Communications Commission, said this was 'unimaginable' and 'unscrupulous persons' were spreading fear. A BBC reporter was unable to get through to the number."
