Man cries bitterly after losing his mother’s N8m to sports betting

A Nigerian man has revealed that he used over N8 million (Eight million naira) belonging to his mother, to play bet and lost everything.

He cried out for help to an influencer who shared the message on microblogging platform, Twitter, where he noted that he is in trouble.

The gambler said he informed punters of his situation but none of them responded to him, hence his resort to sending a message to the the social media influencer so that it can be publicised for people to assist him in raising the money.

He shared screenshots of the online stakes and cut tickets to prove that he indeed lost eight million naira to sports betting.

The message read; “Hi bro I already reached out to you on twitter I will be very happy if you help me out bro I’m in a big trouble and I need help please bro help me out I lost my mom money on sports betting and it’s over 8M. Please I have reached out to all punters I could but none respond bro please I’m just asking for you to help me create awareness and let me get help I attached proof bro.”

Meanwhile, in another news…

CorrectNG recalls that a Nigerian lady identified as Maryam Lasisi 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.”
