The Federal Executive Council, FEC, has approves N495 million for procurement and installation of luggage scanners at railway stations in Abuja, Kaduna, and Kano states.
Ademola Adegoroye, the Minister of State for Transportation, who made his announcement during the Federal Executive Council meeting on Wednesday, stated that it was intended to improve the protection of lives and property at railway facilities.
“The devices that will be deployed at railway stations in Idu, Rigassa, Kubwa, Jere, Kano, and Kaduna include eight color imaging x-rays, eight body scanners, walk through metal detectors, and 50 handheld scanners for an effective security network,” he says.
He stated that in order to ensure the safety of people and property, such equipment must be installed at train stations, and that since the railway revolution has begun, many things are being put in place.
He went on to say that the federal government does not want people to come in and demolish all that the government has been working to put in place in that sector.
