As indicated by the church chief, he once claimed three houses and an armada of vehicles yet lost all that to betting.
He portrayed that a companion acquainted him with sports wagering and he was succeeding from the beginning, which provoked him to wager with more cash.
Jonathan said he won up to GHc80,000 yet needed more, so he marked a greater sum on his third endeavor, which was the start of his betting dependence.
I was a beginner, yet the person who presented me was great at sports examination, so I had a benefit of Ghc3900,” he said on Accra-based 3FM.
I staked Ghc3000 and happily won Ghc5000. On the third time, I marked Ghc20,000 and won Ghc80,000. I asked God, where has this been this while and I have been languishing.
Jonathan said when he began losing the wagers, he pulled out his investment funds and utilized it to stake one more wagered.
