A young Ghanaian church elder whose name was given as Jonathan has narrated how he was so addicted to gambling.
According to him, due to his addiction, he lost a whopping GHC 800,000 and this has left him in serious debt. In his narration, he stated that when he first staked he won and this enticed him to stake more with bigger amount, that was the beginning of his downfall.
He narrated his story during a recent submission with Giovanni Caleb on the 3FM Drive and in his narration, he said;
“A friend introduced me to betting, and my first stake was Ghc5000. I was a novice, but the guy who introduced me was good at sports analysis, so I had a profit of Ghc3900.
The second time, I placed a bet of Ghc3000 and won Ghc5000. On the third time, I staked Ghc20,000 and won Ghc80,000. I asked God, where has this been all this while and I have been suffering. I didn’t know there was such an avenue to make me rich, and that day the betting spirit sank deep into my spirit and blood.”
