FESTAC robbers: Nigerian InfoSec Professional question the NPF claim to carry out forensic analysis on finger prints

In a post by the Premium Times Nigeria, the Nigerian Police force claim that a forensics analysis will be carried out on the finger prints of the FESTAC robbers. But a number of InfoSec Professionals in Nigeria have questioning how that is even possible because for a successful identification of a suspect,  their finger prints needs to be matched with a reference database.

It is a known fact that most ID cards(Drivers license, National ID, etc) used in Nigeria can obtained without the issuer properly capturing the biometrics.
