Bet9ja otherwise known as KC gaming Network Nigeria Limited has landed itself into a credibility controversy following a seven million six hundred and sixty naira (N7,650, 000.00) winning ticket being contested by one man simply identified as Anthony and Oyendikachi Nnatu, who reportedly won the price .
News Planet International learnt that Oyendikachi Nnatu had played the game sometime last year at Komolafe Street, Aiyetoro, Badagry Lagos and won the stated amount without being paid .
Uncomfortable with the delay in receiving his won money, he was on the neck of Anthony, an Agent of the company, who mounted pressure on Bet9ja to pay the money so he could remit same to the winner.
Bet9ja was said to have later but reluctantly paid the said sum into Anthony’s account for remittance to the winner, rather than pay the said sum into Onyedukachi Nnatu’s account as the authentic winner of the game.
With the money in his account, Anthony was said to have bolted away with the money to Ghana preparatory to leave for the US.
His reason for running away with the money, It was gathered ,was Anthony’s grouse that some senior agents of Bet9ja in the area were wont to fraudulent pull out money from the general system anytime clients win from his own shed ,adding that he had reported the act to Bet9ja severally without them taking any decisive action.
It took Police detectives attached to Area ‘C’ Command Headquarters to track and had Anthony arrested insisting that he pays the money to the rightful owner.
Though, he agreed to do a refund, but insisted that Bet9ja management should sanction those agents who were pulling money won in his shed and seeks refund as well.
Sources hinted that Anthony has paid N1.5m (One million five hundred naira) out of the money saying that he had about $2000 US Dollars stashed in his Bitcoin account and intends to pull it out and add same to the amount already.
However following his inability to complete the payment, the matter was charged to court on March 30,2023.
He was granted bail in the sum of N1m with two sureties in like sum. The matter had been adjourned to April 21,2023 for hearing.
