Spokesperson for the Lagos State Police Command, Dolapo Badmos, said the incident took place in Ojodu area of the state.

According to police reports, the lady who hails from Agbor, Delta state, allegedly drugged the doctor and went away with his car, laptop and mobile phones.

Police said she was nabbed on Tuesday when she was traced through a car dealer in Lagos, whom she had engaged to help perfect import papers for the stolen Volkswagen Passat Wagon, 2001 model.

It was further gathered that the suspect had on Thursday, January 19, around 5:30p.m., together with her man friend, checked into a popular hotel in Ojodu, Berger, with the plan to spend the night.

The victim recounted that before he returned from the bathroom, where he went to take his bath, the lady had gone to buy some drinks.

He then decided to take the malt drink and yogurt on the table, and that was how he slept off from 6pm to around 2pm the next day.

He added that, when he woke up, his phones, laptop and car were  nowhere to be found.

The doctor explained further that he didn’t know any of  her relatives and that they met on a social media dating site, Badoo, about a year ago.

According to the victim, he  reported the incident at Omole Police Station immediately the security men at the gate of the hotel informed him that the lady had told them she was going to buy food outside the hotel, and then drove  out in his car.

The victim said he was just aware of her real name, Michelle Harrold, after the arrest, because she had given him Aisha Ibrahim as her name.
