Anambra Youth Volunteer, a group, has launched the ‘Nche App’, a mobile application, to support efforts to tackle insecurity in the state.

According to NAN, Okpalaezukwu said the app will assist the state government in building “a prosperous, livable, safe and smart mega-state”.

He added that the app will enable residents to report security challenges within their communities.
