The Surveyor General, Abdulganiyu Adebomehin, made the promise during a one-day meeting with the representatives of the Office of the National Security Adviser, the military, and other security agencies, according to a statement made available to The PUNCH.

The statement was signed by Head of Press and Public Relations Abu, I. Michael. He stated that in view of the prevailing insecurity in the country, any approach that would solve the menace must be adopted.

He said, “Defence and security operations can hardly be achieved without undertaking critical surveying and mapping that can help in defining locations or areas of incidents covering all manners of unjustified actions against government and the state.

“Such actions may include armed banditry and robbery, insurgency and other act of terrorism, kidnapping and abduction, invasions and smuggling.

“The activities of the various groups of armed criminals culminating into the insecurity facing the country today formed the contention and confrontation of our gallant military and other security agencies to restore a sense of security countrywide.”
