Security experts ask for the deployment of more access control and facial recognition solutions across Nigeria
Security experts believe that more facial recognition and physical access control solutions have to be deployed at Nigerian airports in order to enforce and ensure security, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.
There is a clear and present need for local intelligence agencies in the country to adequately upscale technologies they currently have in order to curb the growing level of violence and local terrorism.
“The Nigerian airport technology is not really there yet, we can still leverage on new physical security technology as with other countries like Hong-Kong, Angola and others.
“So, as you get off a plane, your face is captured and if it matches with the database of Interpol or any global security agency, you are flagged and pulled out of the line before you get to the passport control.
“Also, there is not enough physical access control being implemented within or some specific areas because when you walk through the customs” one expert argued.
