Tinubu orders installation of surveillance cameras on Third Mainland Bridge

LAGOS- President Bola Tinubu has ordered the installation of CCTV cameras on Third Mainland Bridge, Lagos.

This was disclosed in an interview Sunday evening.

Minister of works Mr David Umahi, said the surveillance cameras would be part of efforts to counter crimes and illicit enterprise under the bridge.

Mr Umahi said after discussing the matter with the president, he determined that installing solar-powered lights and surveillance cameras was imperative.

The minister said Mr Tinubu’s fears were validated after he assesed the bridge and confirmed that criminal miners went as far as “destroying the concrete to anchor their small boats.”

According to.Mr Umahi, the surveillance cameras would be mounted on top of the bridge and also below the bridge.

“We are putting up CCTV both on top of the bridge and under the bridge because the president told me that part of the problem we are having is people who are doing illegal mining of the sand,” Mr Umahi explained. “And I agree with him. I have seen it. They even go as far as even destroying the concrete to anchor their small boats.”

He disclosed that the president released the fund needed “and I can say that 99 per cent of the project is done.”

Mr Umahi added, “But what is to be done is additional work, we are putting up solar lights. We are replacing the generator lights with solar lights.”
