A Nairobi woman only identified as Sylvia is nursing a stab wound at a Meru hospital after her Facebook lover turned on her. The lady is said to have travelled to Meru to meet her blind date who later turned against her.
According to a report shared on social platforms of the Directorate of Criminal Investigations, Sylvia embarked on a journey to Meru for a party at the invitation of a man she had been in constant communication with via Facebook messenger. The man, identified as Patoo, asked Sylvia to tag along best friend.
"At 6 pm Tuesday, Sylvia and her bestie Jackie boarded a Meru-bound shuttle along Accra road and set off for the 4-hour journey giggling and teeming with excitement. Along the way, they chatted animatedly and laughed their hearts out as they anticipated a night of pure bliss and niceness in Meru town," the report by the DCI read in part.
Upon their arrival to Meru, Patoo instructed the ladies to board another matatu to Maua town. This, according to the report by the DCI, made the ladies grow suspicious since it was not part of the initial plan.
"The girls who were all dressed up for a party became skeptical as it grew darker and scary but love won and they continued with their journey. The matatu roared noisily as it negotiated bends and ate hills like yams towards Maua the epicentre of Miraa trade, overlooking the Nyambene hills.
"It was way past midnight when the matatu conductor suddenly banged the roof of the beast and announced …Aari kwa Amos tugukinya!
The two girls exhausted, hungry and with disappointment registered all over their faces alighted at kwa Amos and met an eager Patoo waiting for them with relish. " the report read further.
Patoo apologized to the ladies for the sudden change of the party venue and started leading them to a dark path, a move that made the ladies question his intentions.
"Patoo led them to a dark path which he said would lead to their final rendezvous. But the city babes who had never experienced such darkness in their lives started screaming ghaiii! ghaiiiii! wuuuui! wuuuuui! tusaidieni! as they took flight towards the main road.
"Patoo immediately reached for a knife and stabbed Sylvia in her shoulder before fleeing into the darkness. A Good Samaritan who was walking home came to their rescue and took Sylvia to Muthara to hospital for treatment. She was later transferred to Meru Teaching and Referral hospital for specialized treatment," the report read further.
