Tenant Sends Landlord To Prison Over His Missing Chicken

A Nigerian landlord, Olubukunaji Obajimi, 56, has been remanded in prison after he was arraigned in court for locking his tenants inside their apartment over his missing chicken.

Narrating what happened, the tenant’s wife, Mrs Ngozi Okafor said they woke up and after their usual morning prayer, they discovered that their apartment was locked from outside by the landlord and they could not go out, including their little baby.

According to PM News, the landlord alleged that his tenant, Chukwunonso Okafor and his family were responsible for his missing chicken, as they might have eaten it, and locked all of them inside their rooms from morning till evening, insisting they must produce the chicken.

The incident happened at 55, Olubukunayo Obajimi street, Egan, outskirts of Lagos, where both reside. They pleaded to no avail and they contacted their relation, who in turn contacted the police.

The landlord was arraigned on a two-count charge of conduct likely to cause breach of public peace and unlawfully locking out his tenant before Ejigbo Magistrate’s Court in Lagos.

The presiding Magistrate, Mr P. E. Nwaka granted him bail in the sum of N50,000 with one surety in like sum. He was ordered to be remanded in prison custody until he meets his bail conditions. The case was adjourned for proper trial.
