A 55-year-old man identified as Abdulwaheed Lamidi, has died while lodging with a lady he met online at the City International Motel, Council Bus-Stop, in the Ikotun area of Lagos State.

It was gathered that the 32-year-old lady decided to meet Lamidi after a series of conversations, the said lady reportedly travelled from another state to meet her lover in Lagos on Saturday, to begin a romantic relationship.

The lovers were said to have spent the night together, unfortunately, things took a drastic turn when Lamidi suddenly slumped in the room prompting the lady to call for help on Sunday morning.

A source who spoke to The Punch said; “The girl said the man wanted to enter the toilet but slumped and fell on the ground. A doctor that works in a hospital close to the motel was called and when the doctor 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 8.40am 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 state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin said, “We have contacted the deceased’s family and they have shown up. They are applying to just get their corpse. They said they were not interested in any criminal investigation but the command is still considering their application through its legal department.

“A decision is yet to be taken, but the corpse has been deposited in a mortuary. The lady is still in our custody and has declined to give us the contact details of her family because she doesn’t want them to know what happened.”
