While betting appears to be a money-making scheme to some, it also has its downsides.



As a matter of fact, it has rendered many homeless, penniless and even landed some in a state of penury.

It is quite ironic that, while some are seeking a second chance at life even with life-threatening situations, another would freely end his without looking back.

The CEO of Faso Energy Limited, Onoh Chukwuma Richard, has passed on after committing suicide by consuming sniper.

According to reports, he borrowed money, said to be about N2.5m, but lost it in betting.


Earlier on Tuesday, December 12, he went live on Facebook to reveal plans to exit the world.

“Today is my last day on earth! I am going to meet my maker.

“Thank you Chima Anyaso, Ikukuoma Abia, Kelvin Jombo Onumah, Ekwueme Ohafia, and all my friends. My spirit is with you all.”

Friends immediately started reaching out to him, but they eventually found him writhing in pain.


He was rushed to Madonna Hospital in Umuahia, where the Abia-born businessman sadly passed away.

He is survived by his elderly mother, whom he regularly writes about on Facebook.


According to reports, just weeks ago, he spoke about his mother urging him to find a wife and get married.

Reacting to this news, some netizens sympathised with his mother, while others are of the opinion that betting is a risky game, and he was wrong to have indulged in it.
