Wearable's comprise of sensors and have computational ability. Gadgets such as wristwatches, pens, and glasses with installed cameras are now available at cheap prices for user to purchase to monitor or securing themselves. Nigerian faced with several kidnapping in schools, homes and abduction for ransomed collection and other unlawful acts necessitate these reviews. The success of the wearable technology in medical uses prompted the research into application into security uses. The method of research is the use of case studies and literature search. This paper takes a look at the possible applications of the wearable technology to combat the cases of abduction and kidnapping in Nigeria.
