An unidentified middle-aged woman in Enugu has blown the minds of people as she has been accused of abandoning her 4-year-old son in a gambling shop after using him to play lottery which is also known as the popular game of chance.
According to reports, the bizarre incident occurred in the afternoon on Thursday, September 29, 2022, at Moore House Street, Ogui Enugu.
Residents said the woman left her son in the lotto shop after incurring a huge loss that she clearly couldn’t offset. When the wait for his mother became too long, the little boy was taken to the Ogui police station.
According to a police officer who spoke with newsmen, the little child was brought to the station by some people who claimed his mother used him as collateral to play the lottery, adding that the child has been crying and calling for his mother since he was brought to the station.
They said that were having some difficulty getting information from him because he could barely speak, and promised that a full investigation into the incident will be conducted soon.
“The boy from his look, is less than 4 years and was brought to our station by some people who claimed his mother used him to play lotto in Moore House Street, Ogui Enugu.
“We have been unable to gather any helpful information from the Little child because he doesn’t talk very well but we hope to commence full investigation following the lead provided by the good samaritans that brought the boy to the station,” the officer who preferred anonymity said.
