Yoruba nation group unveils mobile app to track kidnappers


A self determination Yoruba nation, the Ilana Omo Oodua, has gone a step further in protecting the people by unveiling a mobile application, Pajawiri, to track kidnappers and kidnap victims in the South-West zone of Nigeria.

The leader of the group, which is the umbrella body of Yoruba self-determination agitators, Prof. Banji Akintoye, at a public event in Ibadan, Oyo State capital, said the application would “expose criminal elements wherever they are with their victims, once the victims have the application installed in their phones, either on or off.”

Speaking on the effectiveness of the application, he said the security system, which can be downloaded on Play Store, also has another system called ‘Afinihan’ that can be used by those without android phones to link up with those with the full application.

Akintoye, who joined the event virtually from the Benin Republic, said the emergence of Pajawiri is evidence that the Yoruba people are too intellectually sophisticated to be subdued.

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 telephone, 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.”
