Operatives of the EFCC, on Friday, July 1, 2022, rescued an alleged kidnapped yahoo-yahoo apprentice, 17-year-old Destiny Peter from an apartment in Mpape, a suburb of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

Peter had on July 1, 2022 contacted the EFCC on its official twitter handle,@officialEFCC, narrating how some yahoo-yahoo boys kidnapped him and intended to use him for rituals.

He was guided to send a screenshot of his location to the Commission, using the Google Location App in his Android phone.

In a series of tweets, Peter wrote:
“Good afternoon sir, I called the EFCC number and lay some complaints about some yahoo boys intending using me for ritual and he said I should send a screenshot of the location.

“The house is in Mpape, but don’t know the exact place so check google map and save the screenshot.
“I’m in the bathroom because I don’t want his boys to know what I’m doing.
“My name is Destiny Peter and the place is Mpape.  I don’t know the actual place but I used google maps and the people in the house now are his boys. Hold on let me try and do a video, sir”

Upon the twitter alert, the EFCC quickly mobilized a team of detectives to the area for his rescue, and they found him locked up in a room. They rescued him and arrested 16- year-old Aboaba David, 18 –year-old Isaac Johnson,  20- year-old cook, Miracle Moses, a hair stylist, and the leader of the syndicate,  20 –year-old Jamilu Aliyu, popularly known as Jamilu Smith.
