Landlord’s son kills tenant over rent in Ondo

One Samuel Omojola, the son of a landlord in Akure, Ondo State has allegedly killed a tenant living in his father’s house during a fight involving his father and the deceased.

The incident occurred at Oke-Ijebu, in Akure, the state capital as Samuel who has been arrested by police operatives was said to have killed the deceased with a plank after hitting him on the head.

Trouble started following a disagreement with the landlord and the deceased tenant over issues bordering on house rent and also the landlord had accused the tenant of insulting him, which later degenerated into a hot argument between the duo.

The landlord was said to have called one of his sons, Samuel who descended on the deceased upon his arrival.

“The tenant fell on the floor and in a pool of his own blood while the concerned neighbours who came out to intervene quickly rushed him to the hospital where he was admitted and died two days after.”

The deceased family and friends were said to have mobilized to the landlord’s house and attempted to raze it but Ijapo police station officers prevented them from razing down the building.
