A 28-year-old artisan in Kubwa, Abuja, was recently defrauded of his computer laptop, mobile phones and unspecified amount of money by a Facebook lover.
The victim, a resident of Berger Camp in Phase 2, Site 1, was said to have met the woman through Facebook, where they started internet dating.
City News gathered that the woman, who lived in another part of the city, decided to visit the man in order to meet with him physically, having been chatting with him only through the Facebook.
A source told our reporter that she came to her lover’s house with a handbag containing some items, including a wrap of couscous.
The source alleged that after making love with the artisan, the woman prepared the pap which she had brought and immediately the man took it, he became charmed.
“As soon as the man became dizzy, she took his laptop, phones and some cash sum and left the house,” the source added.
City News learnt that the man woke few minutes later to discover that the lover had gone while he could not trace her whereabouts.
When contacted, the Kubwa Divisional Police Officer (DPO), Chief Superintendent Nuruddeen Sabo, said the case was reported in his division.
The woman, he said, was still at large, adding: “We are making efforts to track the woman through her network provider.”
