Man Hangs Himself Over N22,000 Loss In Sports Betting In Uyo

A man in his early 30s has chosen to end his life by hanging in his room after losing N22,000 money he took from his boss for sports betting.

 
After losing N22,000 to sports betting, a man identified only as who is in his mid 30s, has hanged himself in his room along Abak road in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom state capital.
 
According to a report by DailyTrust, Uchenna who was a perpetual sports gambler with Naija Bet, took the said sum he lost from his boss in the hope that he would replace it when he wins.
 
His roommate, Ifiok, said the deceased had been lamenting after losing the money and got himself into a terrible state of mind.

“I went out to buy something from Plaza (the city center) and on getting back I found that everywhere was locked. I knew Uchenna hasn’t gone out and I wondered what must have made him to lock up himself. 

"I tried to open the door for several minutes without success until I had to force it open. I then found him hanging from the ceiling fan in our room and his eyes had popped out," Ifiok said.
 
Speaking to a correspondent, the neighbour of the victim, Uto Udobia, decried the high rate of sports betting which has become prevalent among the youths and even elders.
 
She called on government and other regulatory agencies to check the sports betting activities, stressing that it is pure gambling and it is already fuelling crime among the youths and also derailing their career.
