The goal of the training according to Ambassador Oyinkansola, “to transmit our vision of providing tailor made security arrangements to every market we serve,” stressing that security challenges are sometimes peculiar to individual corporate institution, requiring tailor made security architecture that will suit the environment they operate in.

Chief Idris-Shonuga Oluwasheun, Chairman, Majinfotek Nigeria, reiterated that to win the war against insecurity in the country, especially terrorism, kidnapping, armed-robbery, vandalism, among others, investment in technology is critical in reducing the crimes.
According to him, terrorism has become a big threat in many countries, stating, “we have in-built technology that can help detect some suspicious behaviour, even at a very long distance.”
Adding, “For example, if somebody is leaving a bag with maybe a bomb in it, we have cameras that can see the person that is leaving the luggage behind. The camera automatically gives an alarm to tell the control room to check out the bag before something happens. We have cameras with Intelligence Video Analytic (IVA), which analyse pictures, and gives alarm. Whenever you install surveillance cameras in cities, the crime rate goes down drastically, you scare away criminals.”
Oluwasheun stressed that national security is equal to national prosperity, adding that 21st century security has gone beyond only physical manning of checkpoints by security personnel to the use of majinfotek equipment.
