Unable to pay a customer who won N600,000, an agent of popular sports betting platform, NairaBet, yesterday killed himself by hanging himself with a rope.

This sad incident happened at Obadeyi Ajala, with the deceased dangling from a rope in an uncompleted shop at Ajala bus stop, on the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway.

It was gathered that the sad incident drew a crowd to the area and a girlfriend of the deceased, who worked in a filling station in the area, was alerted.

On sighting the corpse of her boyfriend, the lady passed out and was revived by the sympathisers at the scene.

According to an eyewitness: “I was going to my workplace around 8am when I saw people around three uncompleted shops in Ajala bus stop. On getting there, I saw the corpse of a young man in one of the shops dangling from a rope.

“As we wondered what could have made him to kill himself, a lady, who later identified herself as his girlfriend, arrived at the scene and fainted on sighting the corpse. We poured water on her.

“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 calls.

“According to the girlfriend, the late man had a NairaBet shop. One of the customers won N600,000, but he has not paid him.”

The lady was later taken away from the scene by two persons.

Another eyewitness, who identified himself as Olanrewaju Adebiyi, said policemen from the Ijaiye division came to remove the corpse.

“I learnt he ran a NairaBet shop. 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,” he said.

An official of NairaBet Contact Centre, who gave her name only as Chidika said that the firm always paid for any won ticket, adding that it was not aware of the incident.

According to her: “We always pay for any won ticket. An agent has his own personal business. He/she is just a partner with NairaBet in which we share commission on a monthly or weekly basis. So, it depends on the understanding he had with the customer or the issue on the ground before he committed suicide.”
