A woman and her 4-year-old son were forced to spend their night at the Likoni police station, after efforts to trace a man who professed his love for her failed to bear fruits.

According to Sara Wangui who had travelled from Nairobi to meet her lover of one month who claimed to be a police officer, and whom she met on social media (Facebook) known as Tom, failed to turn up to pick her from the Likoni police station where he had informed he was stationed.

Wangui said that in a twist of events, Tom’s friend whom she also claims to be a policeman had arrived at the police station and even tried to convince her that he would take her to Tom’s house.

“Tom’s friend who has been in communication with me ever since l become close to Tom came here and claimed he had been sent by Tom to pick me but I doubt, going by how he looks. He is so unkempt,” she said.

She noted that on Saturday morning she called Tom who agreed to meet her but he was afraid of picking her from Likoni police station.

“I called him today at around 7:00 am and he told me that he was ready to meet me. l don’t know how to go about it, since am new here,” she said.

She further narrated that although she was ready to go back home, she needed to confront Tom to establish how he would refund her Ksh85,0000 which she had allegedly sent him through Mpesa to facilitate the construction of rental houses.

“I want to go back home, but l need to see him face to face and ask him how l would get a refund of my money now that l have realized he is not a police officer at Likoni police station and that the photo he has been using on social media is of an officer attached in Garissa,” she said.

She further appealed to Kenyans to facilitate her travel back to Nyahuhuru.

The matter has been reported at Likoni police station under OB number 20/ 11/21.
