Senate urges security system rollout amid insurgency

08 December 2015, 20:23

Abuja - The Senate has called for the revival of the public security communication system programme to enhance efforts to thwart terror.

The system has been piloted in Lagos and Abuja through the installation of closed circuit television sets (CCTVs) and metal detector scanners in public places.

It has however not been rolled out countrywide.

The calls for its revival come in the back of a spate of terror attacks that have claimed scores of lives in a number of states in the country.
