He had hoped to win a bet which he had been promised was a 'sure bet'
Olabusu was handed a sure bet number that will likely win the week’s lottery as he was convinced by some of the agents. He then went to the hotel, bought drinks and waited for the time the results will be announced.
However, when the results were finally announced, he did not win a dime. He had played the lottery on credit and at the same time was owing the hotel bill.
When the hotel management realised that Olabusu’s hope was dashed as he failed to win, both the lotto agent and hotel management demanded for their money and he was unable to pay.
He was handed over to the police at Ajao Division where he explained what happened. He was charged before Isolo Magistrates court for obtaining under false pretense and stealing.
He pleaded not guilty.The prosecutor, Inspector Rita Momah did not object his bail condition but asked the court for a short adjournment for trial.
