He explained that the app will complement the available channels for reporting crime, adding that there is also the guarantee of anonymity, which is an added incentive for effective whistle-blowing.

“With the app, those who hitherto were afraid to report corruption cases to the commission, either for fear of being identified by the culprits or having their identities revealed, can now do so with the assurance of full anonymity,” he said.

“With the Eagle Eye, Nigerians and non-Nigerians can easily take a picture of a property suspected to have been fraudulently or corruptly acquired and report through the app seamlessly.

“With the Eagle Eye, you have at your fingertips a device that will ultimately ensure that there is no hiding place for the corrupt in Nigeria.”
