The Federal Government has revealed that it will soon start using satellites to monitor the movement of suspected terrorists and their locations in the country.
Nigerian satalites NG- Sat 2 and NG-Sat X are high resolution satellites capable of giving high quality images from space.
The Director General of the National Space Research and Development Agency (NASRDA), Dr Seidu O. Mohammed on Thursday said that security agencies in the country will begin training sessions in the next few weeks.
“We will also use communications satellites and global positioning systems to monitor every neighbourhood.
“We believe that is possible here and we are making effort to do that.
“The training is for military and para-military, we will bring them here and train them on how to use our data, because every satellite launch has its own parameters and you need to understand them, before you operate them.” Dr. Mohammed said.
