Insecurity In Nigeria : Police Call For Installation Of CCTV Cameras On Private Properties

As part of the measures to check the rising insecurity across the nation, the Nigerian police are calling for a legislation that would compel private citizens, including government agencies and corporate organisations, to install CCTV cameras and security sensors on their facilities.

The police made the call on Wednesday at the end of their two-day retreat and conference in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.

The retreat was attended by the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Usman Alkali Baba, and about 148 other senior police officers from the rank of commissioner of police and above from all over the country.

According to a statement on Friday from the deputy spokesperson of the Force, Muyiwa Adejobi, the retreat “emphasised on intelligence as the brainbox of policing and proposed a legislation that will place an obligation on government agencies, corporate bodies, estate developers and private individuals to install CCTV cameras and security sensors on their facilities as a standard practice amongst others”
