A Nairabet agent has reportedly committed suicide over his failure to pay a punter N600,000 he won in his bet shop.

a lady believed to be the girlfriend of the
deceased showed up at the scene and fainted

“When she regained consciousness, she
told us that the man sent her a text
message yesterday (Tuesday), saying he
wanted to commit suicide. She said she
called his line, but he didn’t pick his
“According to the girlfriend, the late man
had a NairaBet shop. One of the
customers won N600,000, but he has not
paid him,”

Another resident, Olanrewaju Adebiyi while
commenting on the issue said;
“If it is true that he was owing a
customer N600,000, he must have received the money from the NairaBet
management and used it for something else. I also play NairaBet and whenever I
win, the agent I patronise pays me the moment the company credits his account.

“The company doesn’t owe the agents, but some of them play smart at times
when customers win big money.”

Public Relations Officer, ASP Olarinde Famous
Cole, confirmed that the case was reported to
the police.

“The incident was reported. I will get back to you with more details later,”
