A 27-year-old man identified as Prince Mieyebi was killed by three armed men in Warri, Delta State, after he reportedly won N15 million in a betting game.

According to reports, the assailants fled with the deceased’s mobile phone, and the victim died before he was rushed to a near-by hospital.
Mr. Thomas Ogisi, an uncle to the deceased who confirmed the murder on Saturday, said;
The boy stays with my elder sister. On that fateful day, they were in Ogbe-Ijoh market and were preparing to close when suddenly three boys blocked him in the shop and they stabbed him.
The incident happened around 6pm on Friday. After stabbing him, they collected only his phone and left. Before he was rushed to the hospital, he was already dead,” Mr Ogisi told Daily Independent.
“The information we are hearing from his friends indicate that he was killed because he won N15 million from a betting game. He was expecting the money to be paid to him on Wednesday before he was stabbed to death on Monday. Some of his friends were aware of the money,”
“We are demanding for justice for the gruesome killing of our son. We want thorough investigation by the police. We are not also happy with the level of security at the market.” he added.
