Meanwhile, previously reported that a man had won N100m with the N10k he stole from his girlfriend and returned her original cash to her.

His girlfriend has vehemently rejected this proposition. She is demanding N40m apparently on the premise that the invested funds belonged to her.

The lady in question has threatened to leave the man should he not offer her the N40m from the money won from the betting adventure. The man is said to be in a dilemma as he doesn’t want to lose his girl and is also not keen on parting with the N40m she is demanding.
