A police sergeant attached to Mopol 19 division of the Rivers State command, Danlami Hassan, has joined the league of Etisalat millionaires when he won N1.25million at the Enugu State edition of the companyâ€™s One9ja Million Dollar Game Show.
The game show is part of the on-going 9jillions promotion and the fourth regional edition designed to create millionaires across the six geo-political regions in addition to the grand prize win of one million dollars.
A Statement said that Hassan who played the game in the company of his friends Aliyu Ahmed, Lucas Eliya and Muhammed, all of whom are police officers, could not hide his excitement when he clicked the game machine that produced the winning for him.
According to Hassan, â€œEtisalat has given me the opportunity I never dreamt will come to pass in my life. With this money I will be able to settle my familyâ€™s accommodation problem permanently by using it to build a house for them in my village in Bauchi state where I come from. The feeling is so good that I will not only continue to participate in Etisalat promotion, but will encourage more police officers to participate in the game so that they can also become millionaires.â€
