Lagos begins installation of 2,000 CCTV cameras

Lagos State Government says it has commenced the installation of 2,000 Closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras across the state. 

The state Commissioner for Science and Technology, Hakeem Popoola Fahm, disclosed this at a ministerial press briefing on Tuesday, May 4, to commemorate the second year in office of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu led administration. 

Fahm said the number of CCTV cameras installed is increasing day by day, but, already, 100 CCTV cameras had been installed in Ikeja metropolis.  The Commissioner added that upon completion, the project would advance Lagos state economy by becoming a 24-hour driven commercial centre, which would allow companies to operate in a safe, secure and smart environment that would create more jobs and increase Gross Domestic Product of the state.

Apart from the installation of the CCTV cameras across the state, Fahm said that Sanwo-Olu’s administration had implemented a 3,000 km of Fibre Metro Network connection in year 2020, and additional 3,000km in year 2021, across the state, as part of the comprehensive Smart City Programme that seeks to provide a 24-hour driven economy. 

Speaking further Fahm said that the implementation of Lagos State Smart City Project is to enable governance, connectivity and environmental security, adding that the use of technology would make reporting of security incidents easy to reach, and promote access to major stakeholders in the government.
