Edo elections: Landlord ejects 5 tenants for supporting APC

07 September 2016, 20:15

Benin City - Five families have been rendered homeless by their landlord for supporting the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Saturday’s governorship election, reports NewsDay.

The landlord, David Agberemole ejected the tenants from his house in Uzea Community in Esan North East Local Government Area of Edo State.

Agberemole is a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)

The tenants – Sylvester Chukwuemeka, Okosun Christiana and Ogbeide Elizabeth – who lamented the fate that befell them for supporting the APC, said they suffered untold hardship from their landlord for their political choice.

Another of the evicted tenants, Sylvester Chukwuemeka, revealed that his rents were up to date, adding that the action of their landlord negates the principle of fair play and justice just because they refused to support the PDP, reports Information Nigeria

“I don’t understand why the landlord will just decide to drive us out of his house because we are not supporting PDP. I pay my rent regularly and this is not fair to me.

However, the landlord was unreachable to state his own side of the story, as his relatives said he had travelled.
