How boss forced apprentice to share N16m BetNaija win



Luck smiled on an apprentice in Alaba International Market in the Ojo area of Lagos State, after he won a sports bet worth N16 million.

According to a Twitter user identified as @oku_yungx, who shared the story on his social media page, the lad’s boss later requested that he is given half of the total winning.


The tweep went on to say after an initial standoff between the duo, other traders in the market prevailed upon the young man to concede to his boss’ demand and he obliged.

In his words, “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.”

Another internet user, @rsvp89 said, “Hopefully, the boy gets a good lawyer and sue him and get his millions back.

“To take half…. is just cruel.

“Would his boss have done the same if he won 16 million ?!”

While @DaCypher tweeted, “Most people saying yes they agree, the boss is right, the boss should’ve collected all these and that.. I bet if they were in the apprentice shoe. They would run away with the entire 16 million.”
