Chairperson, House of Representatives Committee on Science and Technology, Hon. Beni Lar, has revealed that the country has some homemade drones and other scientific innovations to track and detect terrorists and Kidnappers in their locations.
He pleaded with Nigerians not to lose hope, assuring that the drones will soon be deployed.
Lar spoke after being honoured with an award of excellence for delivering tangible innovations in the science and technology sector of the economy by the Federal College of Veterinary and Medical Laboratory Technology, Vom, Plateau State on Thursday in Abuja.
The team was led by the Provost of the College, Associate Professor Okwari A. E. J. She said: “Today, as we all know, we have a great challenge of insecurity. However, I must say that not all hope should be lost.
We should look on the brighter side and also realize that with technology, we can overcome all the security issues that we are facing. “Why do I say this? We have drones. We also have homegrown innovations that have come out in the security sector.
With them, their homes can be tracked and their caves are located. “However, we believe that with time, this technology will be deployed to not only address terrorism, kidnappings and so on but to bring about the scientific status of this country.”
