Tomiwa Olaniyan, a 26-year-old student from Nigeria, recently made headlines after he lost his mother’s savings of KSh 118,000 to online betting.

In a now-deleted tweet, Tomiwa pleaded for help, saying that he kept chasing his losses and that his mother needed the money to buy clothes for an upcoming trip.

Tomiwa, who started betting in 2014, revealed that he intended to double the money and use it for personal needs and school projects.

However, he learnt the hard way that online betting can be a dangerous and addictive habit. He has since appealed for help from bookmaker @Mrbankstips, promising to stop betting if he receives assistance.

The incident has sparked a debate on social media about the dangers of online gambling and the need for responsible betting. Many users have criticized Tomiwa for his actions, calling him foolish and irresponsible.

Some have also argued that online betting companies have a responsibility to protect vulnerable individuals from the risks of addiction and financial loss.

On the other hand, some users have expressed sympathy for Tomiwa and offered words of encouragement. They have advised him to seek help and support to overcome his addiction and manage his finances responsibly. Others have called on the Nigerian government to regulate online betting and protect consumers from unscrupulous operators.
