A social media report that has gone viral claims that a frustrated gambler who experienced a sizable financial loss as a result of sports betting turned to arson as a form of retaliation.
According to CorrectNg, the man allegedly bet $8000 (N6 million), but after losing it all, he decided to go back and set the place on fire.
He returned carrying a molotov cocktail, rumored to contain either alcohol or oil (clothes inside a bottle of alcohol).
The man in a now-viral video dumped it all on the counter of the betting store and lit the molotov with a lighter before hurling it at the establishment.
The employees and other customers who were inside fled to safety as he casually lit the place on fire and left.
