Tenant Murdered By Landlord’s Son Over Rent Dispute

What started as a mere rent dispute between a landlord and his Tenant has snowballed into a murder case .                   

This is even as the police in Ondo State said they have apprehended a middle-aged man, Samuel Omojola, for allegedly killing his father’s tenant following a long-standing rent dispute.

Omojola was said to have hit the tenant with a plank on his head during a fight between him and the landlord, at his Oke ijebu residence in Akure, the Ondo state capital.

It was gathered that the landlord’s son accused the tenant of insulting his father over the rent issue, which led to an argument between the two and degenerated into a fight.

The landlord was said to have called his son who rushed home and hit the deceased with a plank on the head without knowing the cause of the disagreement between his dad and the tenant.

It was learnt that some people mobilised to the house of the landlord immediately after the death of the victim was announced and attempted to set it ablaze.

It, however, took the timely intervention of dispatch homicides detectives from the Ijapo police station who prevented them from razing down the building.

The Divisional Police Officer (DPO) at the Ijapo division reportedly drafted a team of detectives to the scene of the crime where the suspect was arrested while the nerves of the angry mob were calmed.

Meanwhile, a police officer said the case has been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID) for further investigation.
