A man has reportedly asked his son to return the N38 million which is equivalent to GH¢897,761.83 he won through sports betting. The boy, who is said to be 19 years old, staked only N400, and he won the N38 million and brought it home.
His father, however, referred to sports betting as something bad and asked the boy to take the money back to where it came from quickly.
the boy’s brother is seeking advice from members of the public on how to deal with the situation. He lamented that their rent was due and their father had rejected the bet money resulting in a rift between him and his wife. Even though the man has seen the game slip, he has refused to accept the money into his house, saying it should be returned to the betting company.
“MY 19YR OLD KID BRO WON 38M WITH 450 NAIRA AND MY DAD IS INSISTING HE RETURNS THE MONEY BECAUSE HE DOESN’T SUPPORT GAMB’LING DESPITE EXPLAINING AND SHOWING HIM THE SLIP, HE’S STILL INSISTING. OUR RENT IS DUE IN TWO MONTHS, NOW IT HAS CAUSED ISSUES BETWEEN HIM AND MUM. KINDLY ADVICE.” THE YOUNG MAN WROTE.
