A group called Yoruba Nation has unveiled a surveillance application named “Pajawiri”.
The group said the app will be used to tackle the activities of kidnappers and bandits across the South-West Nigeria, TechEconomy.ng can report.
This was disclosed at an event in Ibadan by one of the Yoruba Nation activists, Prof Banji Akintoye, who also doubles as the leader of the umbrella body of Yoruba group, Ilana Omo Oodua.
In a statement issued by his spokesman, Maxwell Adeleye after the unveiling ceremony, Prof Akintoye disclosed that the application would expose criminal elements wherever they were with their victims, if the victims had the application installed on their phones, either on or off.
The Yoruba Nation leader also noted that the application has another system called ‘Afinihan’ that can be used by those without android phones to link up with those with the full application.
He said, “We have now proven to the world that we cannot be captured nor be subdued. We are too intellectually sophisticated to be subdued.
“It is these innovations and intellectual powers that we will deploy to get ourselves out of the quagmires of Nigeria.
“Those in possession of the Pajawiri app on their phone, will be able to activate the app instantly, whenever they find themselves in danger. By activating the app, they will be able to alert their families, their friends and their neighbours that they are in danger and that they need help.
“In that way, no Yoruba person needs to be alone anywhere on their farms, schools, market places, shops and anywhere else. Any person who finds himself threatened by danger and who is in possession of Pajawiri will be able to alert other persons for help.”
