President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the deployment of advanced surveillance technology to address insecurity and crime in Imo and other South Eastern states.
Imo State Governor, Senator Hope Uzodimma told to State House correspondents after a closed-door meeting with the President at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Tuesday that the President’s approval would usher in the use of advanced surveillance equipment to fight insecurity without collateral damage.
The tools, he said, will soon be delivered to the South East.
“I also appealed to him for further support, to support us with some technological deployments; we have planned to be able to do an advanced kind of security control in the South East. He has also given his approval to that.
“And in a moment from now, we will be getting some surveillance equipment and some modern technologies that will help us manage security so that we can fight crime with little or no collateral damage to the environment”, the governor explained.
