A woman identified as Adekemi Faboro, has died over the weekend after she went out on a date with a married man she has been chatting with on Facebook social platform.
The victim said to be a teacher in a private nursery and primary school, in Ojota, went to meet her Facebook lover, Christopher Ezekiel, for the first time when the sad incident occurred.
According to sources in the know, Ezekiel who is married with two kids came all the way from Ibadan, Oyo State to visit Faboro in Lagos State, for the very first time after they’ve been dating on Facebook.
Investigation by PM. News 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.
The cough became more serious which made some tenants living in the same building to rush her to Ifako General Hospital where she eventually gave up.
Police officials at Pen Cinema Police Station subsequently apprehended the married lover, whose wife works with Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, in Ibadan.
Although the cause of her death is yet to be deciphered, the remains of the victim has been deposited at the mortuary for a post mortem test.
An anonymous source at the police station confirmed Ezekiel’s arrest adding that investigations into the matter has been fully fledged.
