South-West secessionist group, Yoruba Nation, has launched a surveillance application called “Pajawiri” in a bid to tackle the activities of kidnappers and bandits in the region.
This development was disclosed during an event in Ibadan by a Yoruba Nation activist, Professor Banji Akintoye, who is also the leader of the umbrella body of Yoruba self-determination group, Ilana Omo Oodua.
In a statement released by his spokesman, Maxwell Adeleye at the end of the unveiling ceremony, Prof Akintoye said the application would expose criminal elements anywhere they were with their victims, as long as the victims have the application installed on their phones, irrespective of whether the phones are on or off.
The leader also noted that the Pajawiri application has another system called ‘Afinihan’ which can be used by those without android phones to connect 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 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.”
