For clarity, a sniffer dog also known as a detection dog is a well-trained dog that can sense and detect objects and substances such as, blood, illicit drugs, explosives, money etc 

Some of the dogs in this category are the German shepherd, Bloodhound, Pitbull amongst others.

These dogs can also be used for hunting and tracking especially at crime scenes as seen in movies and documentaries. They are well known to have a high trust rate at what they do and could go as high as N8 million to specially train a sniffer dog at the airport.

With the high rise of insecurity and bandits attacks in the country, do you think the government should be commended or think that there are more areas where these funds should be made more effective?
