The Application targets about 99 million Nigerians irrespective of class or creed.
The leading implementing organisation is the Global Coalition for Security and Democracy in Nigeria, (GCSDN).
The Global Coordinator Frederick Odorigie said the project involves a technical application that will help security operatives and families to locate where victims of kidnapping are kept after each incidence.
The application will also help international community to keep tap on kidnappers and their victims in Nigeria increasing the prospect of global intervention where necessary.
The application will also help locate the kidnappers and probably record their facial images.
Irohinoodua was informed that the application is being put together by Nigerian security experts living abroad in response to the mindless instances of Kidnapping of Nigerian at home.

The group has its headquarter in Texas, USA with chapters in 40 countries and in 20 Nigerian
Odorigie said the project will help find solutions to the continuing cases of Kidnapping, Rape, Robbery and other Security challenges in Nigeria, he said
