“The accused is hereby sentenced to one month imprisonment or a fine of N10, 000,” Kubeinje said.

Prosecuting Inspector Lucky Ihiehie alleged that the defendant committed the offence on January 28 by playing a game of N50, 000 at a Betnaija centre at Barbinton Street, Mile 12, Ketu, Lagos, without paying.

He said the accused had no money on him when he was searched.
