An Imo state Landlord, Mr Ishiguzo, on Monday 12th October 2020 gave a shocker eviction to one of his tenants for lending the sum of #50,000.00 to his late brother’s wife without a prior quit notice.
Marriage-chronicles.com gathered that the widow, Mrs Patience Ishiguzo, who is the landlord brother’s wife, needed the amount for the burial of her mother in Akwa Ibom State.
The tenant, Mr Stephen Nnadi, who has a shop along the Mbaise Road, Owerri, said prior to the action, the landlord came to his shop to buy some items, only for the shop to be broken down by a court bailiff accompanied by an armed policewoman the next day.
He explained that prior to the coming of the bailiff, he was not owing the landlord.
Nnadi said, “The only thing I know is that I had to lend my landlord brother’s wife the sum of N50,000, which she came to borrow for the burial of her mother in Akwa Ibom.
The widow recalled how she went to the landlord to beg for money for the burial of her mother and was only given N10,000.
When contacted, Ishiguzo said the house belonged to him and that he had every right to evict any tenant whenever it pleased him.
