TENANT RENTS OUT APARTMENT, POCKETS THE MONEY


This is the story of a tenant who because of the landlords long absence decided to pose as the landlord. The tenant knew that the landlord hardly comes around. The house was in Benin City while the landlord stays in Lagos. For this reason, the tenant felt comfortable to rent out the house. By month end, he collects the rent without remitting to the owner. 

 This practice continued for a long time. Until recently, the landlord received the information about tenants attitude. He was furious. Then he decided to inform a barrister and the police about the development. Both stormed the house. Unfortunately, the tenant was not in, as at the time they visited.

Later, when the tenant got home, he was told about the unscheduled visits. He knew trouble was brewing, so he decided to run away. Gradually, he would sneak back in to pick some items, until eventually he packed out unannounced.
