Nigerian Federal Government To Deploy Technology For Border Security

The Nigerian Federal Government says it is deploying technology to monitor movement in and outside the various border areas of the country, to reduce the Nigeria's exposure to insecurity.

The Minister of Interior, Abdulrahman Dambazau, gave the hint in Ogun State on Thursday after inspecting facilities at a private training centre in Remo North Local Government Area of the state.

He said that the development was to ensure the safety and security of the country through the 5,000 km radius border areas with sister African countries.

"The porousness of our border is a general problem in the country. We have close to 5,000km of border all round and most of it unmarked.
