“I was bitter, because he is not my boyfriend and I never bargained for such violation. He apologised and we went downstairs for the supposed birthday. He later told me he was going upstairs to see his boss.
“I waited endlessly without seeing him. When I went to the room, I met the door opened, with the key still with me. I was shocked.
“I discovered that my phones, a Samsung Galaxy S6 and another small phone, my necklace, ATM card and my wristwatch were gone. I went downstairs to inform the receptionists about the development and also asked if they saw him leaving.

“So I just figured out that I could meet the girl I have been chatting with and take her phone to sell. Yes I stole her items.
“I told her to wait in the bar, while I went to the room, took her items and fled. I sold her phone for N20,000.”
