Some of the equipment considered crucial to the prosecution of the war against terror are:
a cell phone location tracking system, counter- surveillance jammer, advance explosive detector, satellite monitoring system and tactical information system.
Others are anti-bomb blanket and back starters, communication and technical equipment, Closed Circuit Television sets, and arms and ammunition.
However, on Tuesday, the British Defence Attache to Nigeria, Col. James Hall, cautioned that laying emphasis on, and procuring modern gadgets and equipment alone would not suffice in the desire to win the war against terrorism in the country.
Hall, a member of the British Army during the era of the counter-terrorism activities against the Irish Revolution Army, advised the FG and security agencies not to prioritise equipment above intelligence gathering.
Hall, who spoke alongside the British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Mr. Giles Lever, the Director General of the State Security Services, Mr. Ita Ekpeyong, Bello and others at the National Defence College, noted that specialised intelligence gathering could not be replaced with the acquisition of the latest technological equipment.
