"WOW" Computer Village Launches Unified Database to Track Stolen Phones

Tracking stolen phones has become a thing of challenge most especially in Nigeria. And one of the notorious places where cases of reported phone theft occur frequently is the largest commercial center in Lagos popular known as Computer Village.

Ikeja Computer village is the largest commercial center for phone traders in West Africa… no matter the kind of phone you are looking for, you’ll definitely find it in Computer village. But criminal activities have dented the image of this community.

However, The Computer and Allied Product Dealers Association of Nigeria (CAPDAN), a trade association of Ikeja Computer Village market traders, has collaborated with a software company to develop a web portal which enables the tracking of stolen phones.

Though I keep wondering all this while why the NG government doesn’t have unified database for all Nigerians despite all the NIMC registration, SIM Reg and all that maybe this will have helped to track easily each Nigerian to their smartphone. Well, maybe the Gov’t can learn something from this initiative.

What do you think about this initiative?
