Nigerian develops app to help tackle criminals

A United States-based Nigerian, Atai Albert has launched a mobile application called ClueGate to help the police, military, and security agencies track and locate criminals and their hideouts.

Albert, who is an Information and Technology expert, told reporters in Lagos that the app is multi-functional and allows people to blog, hold conferences, stream, chat, video, and a marketplace where people can also sell their items.

He said: “‘Save our Soul’ is part of the app that helps police, the military, and other security agencies to track and locate criminals’ hideouts when they have it on their phones.

“The SOS is an emergency button in the app to send out alerts for people who need rescue during times of trouble.

“There is another aspect of the security app, whoever reports a crime will get paid for doing it.

“ClueGate has a whistleblower reward for users who report crimes using the application. Each crime reported attracts a substantial cash reward from the company to encourage others to also report crimes.

“It is true Nigeria is going through security challenges, with ClueGate whoever reports any crime via our platform would be protected.

“The person will remain anonymous; we are presently working with the 81st Division of the Nigeria Army.

“We can work with the police and other security agencies if they allow us. Now we are giving them a platform that can help them in crime-fighting.”
