Landlord Abandons House After Tenant's Death


Tragedy struck at Ikotun area of Alimosho Local Government when an ejected tenant, Sunday Akamadu, was found dead in the same apartment where he was ejected by his landlord.

Following this, the landlord of the house and his family are presently on the run to escape arrest.

The incident happened at 78, Adewale Adeyemi Street, Abaranje, Ikotun, Lagos, South-West Nigeria.

The cause of his death was not yet known, but the members of the late Sunday are crying foul accusing the landlord and his son of knowing what happened to him.

The father of six was recently thrown out of the house with family by the landlord’s son, Adekunle Suleiman. He was arrested by the police at Ikotun Station and released on bail after he opted for settlement.

P.M.NEWS gathered that the late Sunday demanded that the landlord should pay him N1.5 million as compensation for ejecting the deceased and family.

Barely three days after, the landlord’s son opted for peaceful resolution of the mater. The next day, the man was found dead and he was rushed to Isolo General Hospital mortuary without the consent of the family.

Continuing the incident, the eldest child of the deceased told P.M.NEWS that he suspected that her dad was murdered because the family was ejected and three days after, he was found dead while the same people took him to the mortuary without informing them.

“I suspect that the landlord and his son know what happened to my dad. The police should investigate the matter thoroughly.

The death of the 54-year old man is causing a lot of ripples in the area as some of the residents expressed their shock on what had happened.

The late Sunday was also described as an easy-gong person who does not want trouble.

When P.M.NEWS visited the place, the property of the deceased was still laying outside where as his family had earlier relocated to their relations.

The body of the deceased was still at the Isolo Hospital while the family waits for autopsy before his burial at their home town, Umuahia, Abia State.
