Godfrey Owino was seating comfortably at his house in Siaya county probably taking his favorite food of fish and brown ugali. This is after Owino won the heart of a ‘lady” whom he got on Facebook.
Upon agreeing with the ”good looking lady”, Owino was convinced that he had won a jackpot and it was time for the ”lady” to visit the lakeside town of Siaya.
Due to geographical distance, and the need for the ”lady” to reach Siaya in a well-packaged manner, The highly decorated Owino decided that her new bae would not endure the long-distance, full of dust and tiredness from Kilifi to Siaya.
He then decided to put her on a flight. But the ‘woman’ told Owino that ”she” was short of ” transport” which he willingly gave ”her”.
According to the report, Godfrey Owino sent ”her” Ksh 344,500 via Mpesa for fare that would cater for two-way flight tickets, shopping, and for a new brand phone.
All was well as sweet communication was still going on, but later the phone of the said ”lady” went off. This is the time when Owino woke up from his slumber. that is when the poor man realized he was conned.
He reported the matter to the police and luckily the person was arrested and to his rude shock, Owino found out the said lady was a man.
The person was later identified as Justin Kioko and was arrested in Machakos town. he will be arraigned in court for obtaining money by false pretense.
