President Muhammadu Buhari inaugurated the Command and Control Centre of Kaduna State Surveillance and Monitoring System; set up to enhance security in the state.
The project cost the state government over N1.24 billion and included the use of drones and CCT cameras to track and respond to any criminal activity across the state.
President Buhari during the inauguration in Kaduna said tackling security challenges across the country requires intense cooperation between Federal and state governments as well as the general public.
The President commended the decision of the state government in committing significant resources required for infusing technology into the security architecture.
He noted that Kaduna State was the first to embark on such laudable investment, and commended the vision and determination of the APC administration to tackle insecurity challenges in the state.
Buhari said that the infusing of aerial surveillance and monitoring with fixed wind drones and higher resolution cameras put in several locations across the State would lead to significant reduction in crime.
