Green Lotto denied Nigerian winner N72.7m gave reason
Just when some Nigerians, mainly the younger ones are struggling daily to hit a jackpot amid the biting harsh economy, a lottery company, Green Lotto has denied paying a whopping money to a winner, identified as Sunday Nwachukwu.
The company as well explained why the decision was reached not to pay Mr. Nwachukwu his winning claim of N72.7 million after staking on one of its games.
Scanned News gathered the lottery company noted that the decision was pinned on the fact that the claimant allegedly engaged in irregularities, therefore would not deserve any of the money in question.
They further pointed out that the matter was already before a court of law, hence it will not join issues with Nwachukwu.
Recall that same firm, Green Lotto was taken to the Lagos State High Court sitting at the Tafawa Balewa Square over a decision that denied payment of N72,200,000 to Mr. Sunday Nwachukwu.
Green Lotto is organised by a company, Brentwood Multiservices Global Limited based in Ikorodu, Lagos.
The complainant, who testified before Justice Modupe Nicol-Clay, last Thursday, told the court that on January 29, 2021, he played a game with N330,000 and when the result came out, he won the game, but the defendants refused to pay him the winning sum.
But, responding to the accusation of Nwachukwu yesterday, Imoudu Asekhame who is the head of Brand and Marketing Communications, said the company does not pay fraudulent winners or encourage cheating and fraud in gaming.
It is important to know that sometime in 2019, Mr. Sunday Nwachukwu, won the sum of N58,800,000 (Fifty-eight Million, Eight Hundred Thousand Naira) from one of the games we offer and was duly paid his winnings despite our suspicion of some irregularities in his play.”
