A woman is fighting for her life in the intensive care unit after meeting a man she had connected with on Facebook.
The incident, which occurred in Meru, Kenya, has shocked many and highlighted the risks of online interactions.
The victim had traveled from Nairobi to meet her Facebook lover, who had invited her to a house party. Along the way, however, the man changed the venue and led the women down a dark path. When they began to scream, he reportedly pulled out a knife and stabbed the victim in the shoulder before fleeing.
The victim was rushed to the nearest medical facility, where she received treatment before being transferred to a specialized facility. The police launched a manhunt for the suspect and appealed to the public for any information that could lead to his arrest.
The incident is a stark reminder of the dangers of online interactions, particularly with strangers. Online dating has become increasingly popular in recent years, but it is essential to exercise caution and take steps to ensure one’s safety. It is important to take the time to get to know the person before meeting in person, and to meet in a public place.
