A Nigerian man simply known as Niyi has taken to Twitter to recount how his friend lost his entire savings of N140,000.
He said the guy saved the money while doing his National Youth Service programme and when he finished he returned home.
Niyi added that rather than use the money for something tangible, his friend played virtual bet with it and lost.
He said he had to buy food for him that evening as a form of consolation.
He wrote; “Randomly remember my guy who saved about 140k during his service year, only to come back home and lose everything in a day to bet9ja virtual.
Na kuku my area, nah me later buy am food that evening. How do you save for 12 months and lose everything to baby in hours.”
Reacting, @sirtunjiafolabi said; It takes gut to say I quit and you go ahead to quit, peer pressure to na bastard, I have seen a guy that used all what he had, his babes phone then went ahead to bring his credentials to bet, like wtf bet?
In related content, a Nigerian lady identified as Maryam Lasisi has revealed that she lost interest in a man he was interested in dating due to his reaction to losing out in sports betting.
She recounted when she called him on phone and he was crying uncontrollably because his ticket cut and she felt irritated.
According to Maryam, though she does not see anything wrong with a man showing emotions, she felt the way he cried was too much for a man.
She explained that her impression of him changed because of that incident, so she dumped the idea of going into a relationship with him.
Maryam wrote; I called him and he was crying because his bet cut. I’m all for men showing emotions but hearing “Omo I f**k up” while someone was crying his eyes out was very cringe. Omo, I couldn’t look at him the same way again abeg.
In reaction, Twitter user, @Biodexraj commented; Maybe na 1 cut him 50 million naira 😒😒 why him no go cry.
