It said residents woke up to find the deceased dangling from a rope in an uncompleted shop at Ajala bus stop, adding that investigation revealed that the deceased was a NairaBet agent.

“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,” the paper quoted an eyewitness as saying.
