An angry gambler who suffered a significant financial loss due to sports betting turned to arson as retaliation.
He reportedly wagered a total of $8000 (N6 million), but after losing everything, he decided to return and set the premises on fire.
He came back with a molotov cocktail, which is thought to contain either alcohol or kerosene (clothe inside a bottle of alcohol).
In a now-viral video, the man dumped it all on the betting shop’s counter and lit the molotov with a lighter before throwing it at the business.
He lit the place on fire and casually walked away as the staff and other customers who were inside hastily fled to safety.
