Nigeria Now Producing High-Grade Security Merchandise Locally

Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris has lauded the potential of Nigeria in becoming the world’s defence systems solution hub following her capacity to produce high-grade security merchandise locally.

Idris made the remark during a tour of ProForce Armour and Ammunitions Production Facility, a defence systems and gadgets provider, on Friday in Ode-Remo, Ogun state.
According to him, the facility provides armoured personnel carriers, ammunitions, ballistic helmets, bullet-proof vests, armoured cash-in-transit and personal protection vehicles. Idris who lauded the level of expertise, added that the nation’s poise for rapid development could only materialise through adequate support for local manufacturing. He said that Nigeria could save a lot in terms of foreign exchange with internally purchased merchandise in equipping the nation’s security outfits in their fight against crime.

 His words: “To be honest with you, I have seen first-hand what Nigerians can offer with the right support. Here, you can see local content development in practice. 

“I think it’s a great achievement for us as a country when we start venturing into presumed impossible feats and turning them into possibilities. Technologically, Nigerians have the know-how and capacity to compete with the best when it comes to manufacturing. 

“It’s an advantage to us when we see avenues such as these we can exploit to bridge the gap of development and unemployment. 

“For the police, we will continue to support such ventures by exploring local content opportunities of improving the force ability to address security issues and create employment. ”

  9. I've always wondered what they did at that place. No signboard, nothing but very high walls, security guards and camera every where (in Ode Remo for that matter). Now I know.
