Nigerian borders to be manned electronically
The Nigerian government says it will deploy electronic border management to control illegal migration and address insecurity.
The Minister of Interior, Abdurahman Dambazzau disclosed this on Thursday at the opening of 2018 International Press Institute (IPI)’ World Congress in Abuja.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports the congress attended by international and local media personalities was declared opened by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Dambazzau who was fielding questions along other ministers from Mr John Momoh, the President of Broadcasting Organisation of Nigeria (BON), said the e-border system would address the challenge of the nation’s porous border.
He said the e-border would involve biometric processing of immigrants at point of entry and an establishment of multi-agency situation room.
The minister said the multi-agency situation room would allow him and any other interior minister to monitor events and occurrences in borders from his office.
He said his ministry was also developing a migrant data to identify and fish out illegal immigrants.
