‘Fight terrorists, bandits, kidnappers with technology’

The Federal Government has been told to adopt technology to tackle the security challenges in the country.

The Unveiling and Rebranding Nigeria Initiative (URNI) advised the government to adopt the Geographical Information System (GIS), which is a special information system that goes beyond tracking events to fight insecurity.

The Programme Manager of URNI, Abdulkadir Lawal, said this in a statement in Abuja.

Lawal said that the GIS could serve as a major tool in the fight to eliminate terrorists, bandits and kidnappers.

He said: “I think the government is trying its best but I think more should be done like bringing in technology to combat the menace, with modern infrastructure like what is known as, Geographical Information System (GIS).

“If the government can complement its efforts with the GIS, the issue of insecurity will become history. It’s a special information system that goes beyond tracking events but also tell you where those things take place all around the biosphere.”

Lawal said that there was a need to create a central database to link the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) and the necessary security outfits together.

He also called on the government to adopt a multiple identification system which he described as “novel in the world of technology employed by many countries.”

“There is a need to create a central database to link the National Identity Management Commission, NIMC, and the necessary security outfits whereby, Nigerians can alarm such information.

“We also have to adopt the ‘Multiple Identification System which is novel in the world of technology employed by many countries wherein cases of search of an individual or group of persons, the central database immediately opens up and starts to trace such images and give detail footages of such information.

“It’s simply a rapid exchange of information between the government and the people,” he said.

He said the citizens must show patriotism to their country by making sure they expose such criminal activities whenever they notice them.

He advised Nigerians to think of the country first, adding that this is the area the citizens can assist the government.

“To state the truth, we are all connected in the country, so if all of our work collectively, we would start building up a better Nigeria,” he added.
