He disclosed that the Chief of Army Staff, Major General Tukur Buratai, had ordered that kidnapping and other bad deeds must be abolished in the Nigerian states with the help of technology.
Gen Zakari said the anti-kidnapping squad anti-kidnapping team that was put together by the brigade would utilize 2 drones to find and apprehend the kidnappers.
His words, “In recent times, cases of kidnapping had increased in Ondo and Ekiti states, and the General Commanding of the division, General Azinta, had directed that we must do everything possible to bring criminality in the two states to an end. So, we decided to establish the anti-kidnapping squad. And for the past three weeks now, this squad has recorded a lot of success.”
“But there are thick forests in these two states and that is the advantage some of these criminals are using. In some places, you cannot penetrate easily. So, in line with the army chief’s directive and vision, which is to have a responsive Nigerian Army in the discharge of its constitutional role, we decided to use technology in addition to the anti-kidnapping squad in getting these drones, one in Ondo and the other one in Ekiti.”
