Nigeria Immigration Service Enhances Border Security with New Operational Vehicles

The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has announced plans to strengthen its border security operations through the deployment of additional resources and restructuring of its formations.

The newly-appointed Comptroller-General of Immigration, Mrs. Kemi Nandap, revealed the strategic initiative during the inauguration of 30 operational vehicles for border surveillance and patrol in Abuja by the Minister of Interior, Dr. Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo.

Nandap emphasized the importance of bolstering border surveillance and patrol, particularly in light of recent developments such as the reopening of Nigeria’s border with Niger Republic and the escalation of terrorist activities in the country’s northern region.

The acquisition of 30 surveillance vehicles signifies a tangible investment in enhancing the NIS’s capacity to safeguard Nigeria’s sovereignty, protect its citizens, and combat illegal activities, including smuggling, trafficking, and other transnational crimes.

Addressing NIS officers and personnel, Nandap underscored the imperative of maintaining integrity, diligence, and unwavering commitment to upholding the nation’s security. She urged them to utilize and maintain the vehicles responsibly, emphasizing the collective responsibility of securing the country’s borders and ensuring compliance with immigration laws.

Expressing gratitude to Minister Tunji-Ojo for his support, Nandap affirmed the NIS’s dedication to achieving unprecedented efficiency in migration management and border security under his leadership.
