Lotto Operator Reportedly Commits Suicide In Osun

A Lotto operator identified as Seyi has reportedly committed suicide in Osun State.

He runs a  gambling house in Ikire, Osun State, and was alleged to have locked himself up in his gambling kiosk and set himself on fire. He was badly burnt before he could get help and it is suspected he carried out the act after running into debts. 

An eyewitness said:

“We saw smoke coming out of the kiosk. We didn’t initially know Seyi was there. He just went into the shop, locked the doors and windows and set himself ablaze.

“He was a lotto operator. I even learnt he gave money to his child before leaving home that day and he just entered into the kiosk and committed suicide. He was brought dead. People suspected he ran into debts.”

Confirming the incident, Yemisi Opalola said:

“He was a lotto operator in the Center Area, Ikire. He just entered his kiosk, locked up and set himself ablaze. He died and the family asked for his corpse. Though no foul play is suspected, police will still consider some possibilities.”
