Residents of Aoli Village, Agwiciri Parish, Inomo Sub County were engulfed in deep astonishment on Monday after a 28-year-old man walked naked for nearly five kilometers from the trading centre to his home after losing all the clothes he had put on and had used as a guarantee for the game to fellow card game players.

Robin Ebong, according to local residents, first staked his trouser, but after losing the game, again staked the shirt, vest and other belongings including his underwear to his fellow card game players at the trading centre.

Ebong reportedly didn’t have money, but used the clothes which value was equated to the amount of money he would pay if he loses the game.

Vincent Okello, the area LC1 Chairperson of Aoli village, told Voice of Lango FM that because of the incident, as the area leadership they have banned card games to prevent a repeat of the same.

Ebong’s neighbours say, this is not the first time he is losing his clothes to the card game players due to accumulated game losses.
