The nation of Nigeria struggles mightily with terror attacks within their borders. Now they have used their independent know-how to defeat the issue from within.
There is no better proof of the fact that necessity is the mother of invention than the effort by the Nigerian Army to find local solutions to the scourge of Boko Haram, which has unleashed terrorism on Nigeria. The army has become ingenious in designing and creating counter tools and equipment to stave off Boko Haram terrorist attacks.
Thursday, the army authorities unveiled the new anti-bombing device, which it manufactured locally as part of its efforts to tackle the internal security challenge confronting the nation. The army had recently also built Armoured Personnel Carriers (APC) locally as well as other war protective gear like bulletproof vests, among other devices.
An exciting solution to a difficult problem.
Zero RPM’s CEO says their idle mitigation system can save law enforcement vehicles roughly 1,200 gallons of fuel per vehicle each year. Research for the product will continue at Wallace State. As the device is developed further, there will be at least 54 new jobs created in Cullman County.
This is an American double-whammy: protecting the environment and creating jobs.
