Nigeria’s Anambre State Adopts Drone Technology For Mapping




Nigeria’s Anammbra State Government has been carrying out broad tests on the use of drones, however there has been quite a number of challenges in adapting this type of technology  for accurate mapping of the state , general surveillance as well as generating reliable and accurate data on the ravages of gully erosion on our precious soil.

On behalf of  Chief Willie Obiano, the Anambre’s governor, James Eze, his assistant explained that the drone technology is not for crime fighting.

He said: “The attention of the Anambra State Government has been drawn to the misleading reports in some segments of the media, claiming that the rescue of Mr. Pius Maduka, the elder brother of Dr. Cosmas Maduka, the Chairman of the Coscharis Group of companies, was due to the effective deployment of the drone technology in Anambra State. This report is inaccurate and misleading.
