41-year old Ebenezer Olabusu has landed in trouble after he took his friends to a popular hotel, bought drinks worth about Sh20,000 with the hope that he will win premier lottery but failed to win.

The incident happened at White Corner Hotel located at Rasmon Street, Ajao Estate where he went with his friends to drink.

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.

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.
