A 22-year-old girl, identified as Sandra snatched a Toyota RAV4 2011 model SUV belonging to her Facebook lover car at gun point.
The man who lives in Oganiru Estate complex, Awka, Anambra State was lured out by the girl while they were chatting each other, using the Facebook messenger.
Sandra with a gang of three armed men, lured her victim to St Vincent Primary School, Ogidi, Idemili North local government area.
Instead of the love both of them professed to each other, the 30 year old victim, who is said to be a businessman was pounced on by three armed men who dispossessed him of his vehicle, while the girl joined them to flee, leaving the ‘lover man’ victim stranded.
