Promised Lover entangled in death irony in Lagos motel

Published on

A man has lost his life while lodging with his girlfriend at the City International Motel, Council Bus-Stop, in the Ikotun area of Lagos State.

NaijNaira understands that the 55-year-old Abdulwaheed Lamidi and his lover met online and after a series of conversations, they agreed to engage in a romantic relationship and meet physically.

The 32-year-old lady, on Saturday, travelled from her house in another state to meet Lamidi at the motel.

The lovers were said to have spent the night together in a room.

However, things took another turn on Sunday morning.

A source said the lovers were in the room when the girlfriend suddenly ran out to call for help.

He added that when some motel workers rushed into the room, they found Lamidi lying motionless on the ground, and when a doctor that works in a hospital close to the motel got to the room, he certified the man dead.

“The girl said she came to Lagos to meet the man as he promised to marry her; she came with some property and had the intention of moving into his house to be his live-in lover. Instead of going to the man’s house, they went to the hotel and they were in the room when the girl ran out to call for help because the man slumped.

“So, when people rushed into the room, they found him lying unconscious on the ground. The incident happened around 8.40 am on Sunday but the girl arrived from another state on Saturday. The girl said she met the man online and that they had been chatting,” the source added.

The corpse was taken to a mortuary, while the woman was arrested for interrogation.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, who confirmed the incident, said the suspect declined to involve her parents in the investigation.
