A man who assaulted a lady after losing a N200 bet at a Nairabet shop in Delta mall, Delta State, has been apprehended.
The sour loser who resorted to begging after he was handed over to a military officer present at the scene, reportedly took out his frustration on the lady by using a bucket to hit her left eye. The man who promised to take responsibility of the medical bills of the lady he assaulted after losing a N200 bet, was however whisked away by the police after he admitted he was wrong.
This is coming few months after we reported, that a Nigerian man was murdered after winning N11 million on the football betting platform “Naija Bet”.
The lifeless body of the victim whose name was given as Achuku Joseph, discovered at the early morning of Saturday abandoned by the roadside at the Federal University, Lafia, with several deep machet wounds. Information gathered from a member of the victim’s family who pleaded anonymity said, late Achuku was being monitored right from the time he won the game by some of his friends who earlier threatened his life in order to have a share of the money.
“Achuku had to relocate to another place to hide, but they traced him and used diabolical charms on him which made him sick and started behaving abnormally.
“We then decided to employ the services of a pastor who prayed for him and later took him to the Dalhatu Araf Specialist hospital in Lafia. It was in that process, that certain diabolic portion was discovered in his pocket. The portions were removed and discarded before reviving him”, he explained.
