“A Nigerian Twitter user who has been simply identified as Omotoyosi has come under criticism.

The young woman is being bashed for tweeting early Thursday that she had been kidnapped at a location in Lagos which she mentioned.

“I’m being kidnapped guys. I’m being raped. Number 78 Obayan Street, Pako, Akoka, Lagos,” she wrote in the now-deleted tweet.

“However, it was soon discovered that Toyosi’s cry for help was a false alarm.

According to one Otunba on Twitter, Omotoyosi’s brother immediately acted on the tweet and alerted the family only to realise it was a false alarm.

“Her prank comes in the wake of a distress tweet sent by Dr Chinelo Megafu who was killed in the recent Abuja-Kaduna train attack. Many had assumed Chinelo was clout-chasing after she tweeted that she had been shot by terrorists who attacked the train.

Amid rumour that occupants of the house which she mentioned have been arrested, Twitter users have started calling for punishment for Omotoyosi.
