Lagos State government has installed about 90 Close Circuit Television (CCTV) camera across the state. Commissioner for Science and Technology, Obafemi Hamzat, said this on a radio programme, adding that the CCTV had in the past, helped to arrest criminals who robbed a woman. Hamzat said Information Communication Technology (ICT) had been deployed by the state in carrying out many government activities in the area of health services, education, judicial process and issuance of Certificate of Occupancy.
He said about 80 schools in the state had been provided with ICT laboratories, to give students in state secondary schools the opportunity to interact with the outside world, and improve their knowledge base. On the possibility of vandalising the camera, Hamzat said, 'if someone is trying to tamper with camera A, camera B is surely monitoring it. We will have what we call the ring toplogy, that is some will overlap, so that if camera A and B is checking a particular direction, camera C and D will also be looking at 15 % same direction and 85 % of somewhere else, so by that we have an overlap.'
