A young apprentice in Alaba Market, Lagos, smiled to the bank after he won a sports bet to the tune of N16 million.
One @oku_yungx, who narrated the story on micro-blogging platform, Twitter, revealed the excitement of the young boy was cut short after his master made an outrageous demand.
The tweep said the boy’s oga demanded that his apprentice should give him a 50% share of the N16 million he won (N8 million).
It was later revealed that the market people threw their weight behind the boy’s oga, and the apprentice succumbed and parted with N8 million.
The tweep said,
“So this boy who is currently undergoing his Apprenticeship with oga at Alaba market won 16 million Naira on BET, and his boss requested he shared the money into 2. Meaning his boss goes with 8 million. I hear the market people supported his boss, so he had to oblige.”
Reacting to the tweet, some people said the boy’s oga must be a very wicked person for demanding that much from him, while others said the boy should have eloped with the money he won without letting his master know about it.
