THE leader of the Umbrella body of Yoruba Self-Determination Groups, Ilana Omo Oodua, Professor Banji Akintoye has launched a mobile application, ‘Pajawiri’ designed to track kidnapped victims and expose danger in Yoruba land.
This was made known in a statement issued on Monday by the spokesperson for the Ilana Omo Oodua group, Maxwell Adeyemi.

Akintoye noted that Pajawiri is an innovative way of fighting and combating crimes in modern society.
According to him, the mobile application and alert system can expose criminal elements wherever they are with their victims once the victims have the application installed on their phones, either on or off.
He noted that the Security System has another system called AFINIHAN that can be used by those without android phones to link up with those with the full application.
Speaking at the launch held in Ibadan, Oyo State, Akintoye, who joined the event virtually, said the emergence of PAJAWIRI is evidence that the Yoruba people are too intellectually sophisticated to be subdued.
Akintoye was quoted as saying, “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.”
On the attendant benefits of PAJAWIRI, Akintoye, added, “Every person 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.
“In short, Yoruba people today, are able now to enjoy security individually and collectively through the use of the App known as Pajawiri.
“The Ilana Omo Oodua Worldwide owes our engineers who have put this together an enormous debt of gratitude. The Yoruba people also owe a lot of gratitude to the umbrella body of Yoruba Self-determination groups, ‘Ilana Omo Oduduwa’ for all the encouragement and support that they have given to these engineers.
