Nigerian AFIT Develops Bomb Detector Robot

The Nigerian Air force has invented two Unmanned Ground Vehicles and a Light Surveillance Aircraft developed by the Nigerian Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT), Kaduna, north-west Nigeria.

The bomb-detecting robot is capable of defusing Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). The development is as part of the force’s contribution to the fight against insurgency in the troubled North-eastern region.

Commandant of the AFIT, Kaduna, Air Vice Marshal Toni Adokwe, made the disclosure at a gathering ahead of the institute’s 44th convocation ceremony.
