Nigerian student cries out after losing his mother’s N400k to sports betting
A Nigerian student identified as Tomiwa Olaniyan has cried out on microblogging site, Twitter after losing N400,000 which belongs to his mother.
The 26-year-old man revealed that he used it to play virtual bet and lost everything, but the problem is that his mother needed the money urgently and he doesn’t know what to tell her.
He pleaded with punter and bookmaker, @Mrbankstips to assit him with the funds as his mother was traveling on Wednesday and needed the money to buy clothes
In a now-deleted tweet, Tomiwa, with username @tomiwa201, vowed to stop betting should help come his way.
The undergraduate lamented that his intention was to double the N400,00, and use it to settle personal needs and school projects, but it ended terribly.
He shared screenshots of the ticket that cut and wrote; “Good morning sir, please help me, I lost over 400k of my mom’s money. I keep chasing my lost.
Please, she’s traveling today to buy clothes. I swear I’ll stop betting if you help me. Please. I’ve messaged others no answer. I’m having panic already. I have all the evidence.
Tomiwa also said; “I wanted to double it as I need some money for personal needs, school projects and all. No bet is sure. Even if it’s 1.2 odds. And no one should stake what they can’t afford to lose.”
