A middle-aged man found himself drained of energy and momentarily unconscious after losing two hundred thousand Naira in a gambling game shortly after winning the same amount from the very same gamble.
According to the GossipMill blog, which published the story, the man had the stroke of luck to win two hundred thousand Naira in the gambling game. However, greed crept in, driving him to seek more winnings.
It was at this point that he proceeded to wager forty thousand Naira, which quickly vanished. Before he could comprehend the situation, the entire two hundred thousand Naira had gone down the drain within a short period, transforming joy into sorrow.
A widely circulated video on social media captured the heartbreaking moment when the young man, due to his ill-fated investment, was left lying on a mattress, completely drained of energy. He seemed unwilling even to glance at his phone after losing the money.
