Landlord Sues 70 Year Old Widow Who Owes Him 20 Years House Rent To Court

A 70 year old widow identified as Mrs Elizabeth Adeoni, was on Wednesday arraigned in an Osogbo customary court for owing rent arrears for 20 years.

The widow's landlord informed the court that Adeoni stopped paying her house rent in 1995. Adegoke, therefore, prayed the court to assist him to recover his money from the old woman. He further urged the court to order Adeoni to pay the rent and vacate the house.

Adeoni on the other hand said that life had been very difficult for her since her husband died many years ago, adding that things became worse when she lost her two children. She wept and pleaded with the court to beg the landlord not to eject her from the house because she had nowhere to go.

The President of the court, Ladipo Balogun, urged the woman not to lose hope and charged her to find something to do so as to be able to pay her rent.

The case has however been adjourned to March 15 for further hearing.
