A few years after, Cynthia Osokogwu, the daughter of a retired miliitary officer,was allegedly lured to Lagos by her Facebook lover, drugged, raped and murdered in Festac Town, another Facebook lover has died in Lagos.
The latest victim, identfied as Adekemi Faboro, a teacher at a private nursery and primary school, in Ojota, died in Ogba area of Lagos last weekend while on a date with her married Facebook lover, Christopher Ezekiel, for the first time.
Sources said that Ezekiel, a father of two, came from Ibadan, Oyo State, southwest Nigeria, to visit Adekemi in Lagos State, for the first time on the fateful day, after he met her on Facebook.
Investigation revealed that trouble started for Ezekiel, an engineering staff of an electrical company based in Shagamu and who resides at 8, Orelope Street, Ibadan, when Adekemi started coughing severely at mid night in her home, at 5, Folorunsho Street, off Ajayi Road, Ogba.
And when the situation was getting out of hand, tenants who suspected foul play, rushed her to Ifako General Hospital where she died.
Ezekiel was subsequently arrested by the police at Pen Cinema Police Station while the corpse of Adekemi was deposited at the mortuary for autopsy.
The cause of her sudden death could not be ascertained at the time of this report.
However, findings also revealed that Ezekiel’s wife works with Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, in Ibadan.
The Divisional Police Officer, DPO, in charge of Pen Cinema Police Station, Mr. Achinyan Z. Fera, a Chief Superintendent of Police was said to have gone to Area ‘G’ Police Command, Ogba to meet with the Area Commander, when visited.
However, a source who craved for anonymity at the station confirmed the arrest of Ezekiel, adding that investigations are ongoing.
Meanwhile, some of Adekemi’s friends on Facebook have been mourning her, with some expressing shock over her sudden death.
Joyce Ante said: “May the Lord comfort your aged parents, the entire family and Calvary church.”
