This study is aimed at surveying fingerprint pattern of people living in Bosso, Pai and Kodo communities of Bosso Local Government Area of Niger state, which can be helpful in resource management for Niger State of Nigeria. The samples were grouped into Bosso, Pai, Kodo and Bosso Local Government Area as a whole. The communities were visited for data collection. The fingerprints were captured using Digital persona 4500 sdk 4500 sdk fingerprint scanner. The collected fingerprints were tabulated in Microsoft excel 2010 and represented in percentile of occurrence of the fingerprint patterns for each group. The types of fingerprint patterns captured include; Ulnar Loop, Radial Loop, Plain Arch, Tented Arch, Plain Whorl, Double Loop Whorl and Central Pocket Whorl. There was no Accidental Whorl fingerprint pattern among the population of Bosso Local Government Area of Niger State.
