Imo Man Dies After Drinking 20 Sachets of Gin in N500 Bet



Homeless Man

A middle-aged man from Imo State reportedly died after consuming 20 sachets of gin in a N500 bet he had with a woman.

The deceased named Chucks, a barber, was happily married with a child, and lived in Aba, Abia State, Vanguard reports.
According to an eyewitness account:
The deceased had on the fateful day, gone to a nearby local shop situated within the area to take a sachet of his usual brand of gin and boosted to the shop owner that he could finish 20 sachets of the drink.
This was said to have led to an argument between the deceased and the shop owner and other customers in the shop that morning.
The argument, it was learned, reached a stage where the deceased deposited N500 and the shop owner also placed her own N500 in a bet.
The deceased was then provided with the sachet drinks for consumption.
It was gathered that he successfully consumed the 20 sachets of dry gin and went away with the bet money.
The deceased was said to have left his barbing salon earlier that day to his house when he started feeling some pains in his stomach and asked his wife to put on their sitting room ceiling fan and sat  directly beneath it.
When his condition got worse, his wife asked him what the problem was.
The deceased told his wife he was okay, but just needed rest.
He subsequently died.
