A 27-year-old punter who won a staggering N15 million betting was stabbed to death by three armed men in Delta State.
The young man who is identified as Prince Mieyebi was murdered in Warri, while closing a shop belonging to his Aunt at the popular Ogbe-Ijoh market in Warri South LGA of the State
According to reports, the assailants fled with the deceased’s mobile phone after stabbing him on various parts of his body. He died before he was rushed to a near-by hospital.
Freshreporters learnt that the deceased had played the betting game a week before his death with all his predictions going through to the sum of N15 million.
The uncle to the deceased, Mr. Thomas Ogisi, while confirming the murder said he has no idea if the murder is connected to the reported N15 million win.
It was learnt that the assassins made away with the deceased’s phone making it impossible to access his betting account.
The uncle told reporters:
The boy stays with my elder sister. On that fateful day, they were in Ogbe-Ijoh market and were preparing to close when suddenly three boys blocked him in the shop and they stabbed him. The incident happened around 6pm on Friday. After stabbing him, they collected only his phone and left. Before he was rushed to the hospital, he was already dead.”
“The information we are hearing from his friends indicate that he was killed because he won N15 million from a betting game. He was expecting the money to be paid to him on Wednesday before he was stabbed to death on Monday. Some of his friends were aware of the money,”
“We are demanding for justice for the gruesome killing of our son. We want thorough investigation by the police. We are not also happy with the level of security at the market.”
