The message reads:

“My 19yr old kid bro won 38M with 450 naira and my dad is insisting he returns the money because he doesn’t support gamb'ling despite explaining and showing him the slip, he’s still insisting. Our rent is due in two months, now it has caused issues between him and mum. Kindly advice.”
