Lagos to install 10,000 CCTV cameras

The Lagos State government yesterday said it had concluded plans to install 10,000 Close Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras across the state in a bid to ensure security.
The Commissioner for Economic Planning and Budget, Mr. Akinyemi Ashade, disclosed this while giving a breakdown of the 2016 budget, tagged “The Peoples’ Budget” adding that the state government would also activate the existing 1,000 CCTV cameras in the state.


According to him, “We will be expanding our ICT infrastructure statewide. Consequently, a budget of N9.6 billion has been approved for this purpose in 2016. This will include a Smart City project targeted at deploying technology to enhance security in the state. It will also aid our revenue generating efforts”.


“We will be increasing coverage of CCTV installations in the state. Our goal is to have over 10,000 active cameras, connected by Broadband. The existing 1,000 cameras will be reactivated and these will be increased by an additional 3,000 cameras after the completion of the first phase of this project.”

The Commissioner added that attention will be given to improving disaster management, purchase of firefighting, occupational and public safety equipment, and the construction of new fire stations and relief camps across the state.
