The Police Command in Nasarawa State has commenced investigations into the circumstances surrounding the alleged murder of one Joseph Achuku over his Bet9ja pool win.

DSP Idrisu Kennedy, the Command’s Public Relations Officer, disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria on Tuesday in Lafia.

Idris told NAN that available information indicated that Achuku’s death might not be unconnected with the N7.4m he won in the Bet9ja lotto.

He said the remains, which were deposited at Dalhatu Araf Specialist Hospital mortuary, was released to Achuku’s family on Tuesday for burial.

The PPRO said though no arrest has been made, the Command would ensure that the perpetrators are arrested and prosecuted.

A source from the family of the deceased, who preferred anonymity, told NAN that the alleged killers started hunting Achuku since he won the lottery.

He said that the yet-to-be-identified suspects followed Achuku to the family house, attacked him and took away all the documents relating to the bet.

Bet9ja Unprofessional Behaviour

Two aggrieved customers of the leading bookmaker in Nigeria, Bet9ja, Dennis Dickson and Orazurume Jude Mary, have called on the company to pay them their dues.

Dickson stated that he has been deprived of his winning twice by the company, saying, “The first instance occurred during the 2018 World Cup, when I staked a bet with the company on the option that some selected players will not score more than 2 to 3 goals per match, all of a sudden after winning the ticket the company void it and said the option was meant to run for the whole of the tournament.

“The second time, I staked on some players that during the transfer window they will not change club without loan deals included, after winning my ticket the company on the 31st night of August 2018 changed the optioned and said that loan deals are also included. Whereas, a loaned player is still the property of the parent club and can be recalled at any time even before the expiration of the loan deal. “

Dickson stated that his tickets are: B93ECCWRTQZPE-675035 and B959ECCWERAWTT-68445.

Orazurume Jude Mary Tochi also stated that he played the game in Ekwulobia, Anambra State and the company reneged on the initial agreement that was reached earlier and that was not part of the initial agreement.

Tochi said: “I entered a bet with Bet9ja company under the category of transfer market with bet placed on whether a player would go on transfer to another club or not.

“Loan deal did not count at the time of this deal, but Bet9ja suddenly turned around and reversed the rule of the transfer market, stating that loan deal now counts after we agreed on transfer or no transfer.

“The sudden change was not acceptable as it was against the terms and conditions given to customers, after predicting players who will not change club.

“This amounted to N16,000,000 and N200,000.

“Two players are on loan, which is NOT transferred to the best of knowledge.

“Players on loan still belong to their parent. I went to my game its shows its lost, am not happy.”

Tochi gave his ticket number as B928SPPRCWPPSC-211061.

The accused, whose address is unknown, is facing a count charge.

The prosecutor, Insp. Akpan Ikem, told the court that the accused committed the offence on Jan. 26 at a Bet9ja shop on old NEPA Road, Badagry.

He said that one Mr Bolaji Avoseh was the attendant in the shop.

“The accused came into the shop pretending to bet on some football matches going on.

3 Bet9ja customers drag firm to lottery commission over N3m claim

Three customers of Bet9ja have petitioned the National Lottery Regulatory Commission, claiming the betting company had not paid the over N3 million stake owed them.

The petition was received at the zonal office of the commission on Tuesday in Ilorin. It was signed by the contact persons for the affected customers, Emmanuel Ajiboye.

The petition stated that the trio had entered into a bet with the company under the category of “Transfer Market,” with bets placed on whether a player would go on transfer to another club or not.

The petitioners said a “ Loan Deals Do Not Count” transaction was confirmed in an email by Bet9ja on August 28. They, however, expressed dismay that on August 31, Bet9ja “suddenly” turned around and reversed the rule of the transfer market by stating that “Loan Deals Now Count” as contained in a mail the same day.

The petitioners expressed the belief that this was done in order to renege on payment to customers who had played and we’re going to win. They described the company’s “contradictory” statements as unprofessional by a leading bookmaker.

The aggrieved petitioners said it was in their knowledge that players on loans still belong to their parent clubs and could still be recalled before the end of their loan deal.

They said the sudden change was not acceptable as it was against the terms and conditions given to customers. The petitioners also threatened to explore legal action should Bet9ja refuse to respond favourably to their complaint.

They urged the commission to look into the development and ensure justice was done. Mr Yinka Salau, an official of the zonal office of the commission in Ilorin, confirmed the receipt of the petition.

He said the petition had been forwarded to the commission’s head office in Abuja for further investigation. Salau explained that the management of Bet9ja would be invited to state their own side of the case.
