It is no doubt that Nigerian landlords and tenants often have very shaky relationships that stem from many issues bothering on rent payment and different breach of contracts by either the landlord or the tenant.

Twitter user, @MTinuoye, recently took to the platform to cry out for help after she revealed what a tenant who was owing rent, did to his landlord's property after he was served a quit notice.

According to her tweet, the rent-owing tenant has been taken to the police station several times on the issue of his rent payment, but he keeps bribing his way out. He eventually moved out but not before destroying the property.

While most disputes between landlords and tenants often end up in court or settled out of court with lawyers, it appears this particular landlady in Edo state was not willing to let any of these happen as she took matters into her own hands.

Her tenant who is a pastor and rented her building for his church activities, was yet to renew his rent after it had expired in October. Rather than vacate the building as he was told by the landlady, he remained.

This in turn annoyed the landlady and pushed her to storm the building with bags of trash and litter everywhere. The incident reportedly occurred at Igbinoba street, off Akugbe road, Benin, Edo state.

As the standard of living in Nigeria continues to depreciate at a disturbing level, more people are finding it difficult to get by and as is the case with this story, landlords aren't making it easier on them either.

A Twitter user identified as Nneka who lives in a rented apartment in Bariga, Lagos, recently took to the micro-blogging platform to cry out after she received a letter from her landlord's lawyer notifying her of the rent increment from N550,000 to N1,000,000.
