FG launches public safety alert system

The Minister of Interior, Lieutenant General Abdulrahman Dambazau (rtd), announced Friday that Federal Government has launched a national internal security and public safety alert system for Nigerians.

He explained during a press briefing that the system involves a mobile app that puts information and panic buttons in one place for all the agencies under the Ministry of Interior.

The Minister said that the whole idea is to create a user-friendly method of ensuring internal security across the country.

“The app can be downloaded on Google Play Store by typing NISPSAS. The response time for the panic button is in microseconds”, a technical staff said.
