A landlord in Edo state has evicted at least 5 tenants in his house in Uzea Community, Esan North East Local Government Area for supporting the All Progressive Congress.
The landlord, identified as Mr David Agberemole, who is a supporter of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has apparently been making life hard for the APC supporting tenants.
PDP landlord evicts APC tenants
One of the tenants, Okosun Christiana said, “We don’t have any problem, just party differences. He told us he wanted everyone in his house to support PDP because he is a member of the party but I refused. I told him I have been in APC for a long time. Even if PDP is buying me a car I prefer to remain in the APC. He said if that’s my stand, i should consider myself evicted from his house.”
Another of the evicted tenants, Sylvester Chukwuemeka revealed that his rents were up to date. He also added that the actions of the landlord were unfair just because they refused to support the PDP.
“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. The state government should come to our aid. I don’t know when it became a crime to support a party.”
