Using geospatial data appropriately will tackle insurgency, banditry, Kidnapping and other forms of insecurity in Nigeria, a Professor of Digital Systems Engineering, Dr Nentawe Yilwatda, has said.

Yilwatda, in an interview with newsmen in Abuja, also said conversations of criminals can be tracked using advanced telecommunication systems.

“We have digital mapping and we have bandits moving in their numbers.

“To some extent, we have improved the quality of our maps and we should improve the resolutions of our imageries to detect movement of vehicles and criminal activities.

“Telecommunication is not on the exclusive list, meaning that state governments can make their independent policies on telecommunication.

“We can make policies to track telephone records, filter the data, and track communication and discussions,” he said.

He added that technology can reduce kidnapping if implemented at state and local government levels.

The expert also proposed the use of night vision goggles that can see over three kilometres at night and the training of officers in the use of advanced security gadgets.

He said acquiring a minimum digital skill can also be a requirement for recruiting officers.
