The DG of the National Space Research and Development Agency (NSRDA) has said that bandits terrorising the country are sophisticated and can’t be traced.
According to Halilu Shaba, inadequate satellite and other facilities affect the agency’s capability to trace bandits and other criminal elements operating in the country.

Shaba said the bandits have become sophisticated in their operations and waves received by the agency from remote areas shows the bandits no longer use Global System for Mobile Communication (GSM) phones, but walkie-talkie.

“The Satellite is not static where the insurgency is taking place. That is why one satellite is not adequate. What Nigeria has there are some two satellites doing two different things.

“We have a High-Resolution imaging satellite and Medium Resolution imaging satellite. The activities of the bandits could be when the satellite was away from Nigerian borders, so that is why we are advocating for more satellites for Nigeria,” he said.

Shaba, therefore, called for collaboration between the agency and security agencies in the country in the area of information sharing, especially when planning to launch attacks on the criminal elements.

With all the funds dished out for the exercise you are telling Nigerians that you can't trace the bandits but you can trace IPOB , OPC , and Niger Delta militants  How can you can you betray your Northern solidarity by tracing your brothers. Give that assignment to a Southerner , Igbo man for example everyone of them will be picked up. Who doesn't know that BANDITRY is big business organized by AREWA CONSULTATIVE forum.

A terrorists sponsor and member of terrorist gangs can not trace his members for them to be arrested or killed.

Story for the gods.
Just tell us that you guys have swallowed the money meant for the satellite upgrade or whether the bandits have settled you guys to look the other way.
