The International Criminal Police Organization, INTERPOL, has partnered with VoguePay, a leading online payment and security infrastructure provider for the design and delivery of its citizen focused action and information portal for crime control in Nigeria.
Aptly named interPort, it is a platform to access information, manage stakeholder engagements and manage crime reporting.
The multi-channel digital platform enables INTERPOL to improve citizen engagement and improve collaboration with its partner networks for control of crimes in Nigeria. Speaking on behalf of the agency, its commissioner of Police in Nigeria, Olushola K. Subair noted that “the partnership with VoguePay will help the agency to increase the safety of Nigerians and to protect the economy while enabling citizens and businesses to comfortably embrace available technologies to grow their businesses, increase their profits and create more jobs”.
As the technology partner, VoguePay brings its experience in payment security and blockchain to implement a scalable, cross-agency blockchain-enabled data collaboration platform that delivers assurance of a trust less, virtual chain-of-evidence compatibility among all INTERPOL stakeholders. In his remarks, Michael Simeon, CEO of VoguePay noted that by leveraging blockchain, INTERPOL is now better positioned to offer cross-agency data and biometric collaboration with its key partners in Nigeria with a single version of the truth.
VoguePay is a global online payment gateway that supports multi-currency transactions. Its Africa’s first blockchain-powered digital banking platform is due to launch in 2018.
