Lagos landlord and his wife disfigure tenant’s face over ‘quit notice’

A Nigerian lady, Mary Onyian, has recounted how her landlord, Samson Ekweozor, and his wife, Anurika Ekweozor, allegedly attacked and disfigured  her with a sharp object over her family’s refusal to vacate an apartment in Ikotun-Egbe, Lagos State.

It was disclosed that Mary and are family got a quit notice barely a month after they moved in and since no refund was made to them, they decided to stay put.

According to her, “We don’t know the reason we were asked to move out. The whole drama started during the lockdown and we had nowhere else to go. I was out of work at that time. We were battling to feed and survive during the lockdown when the landlord and his wife asked us to vacate the apartment, which we had just rented and moved in.

“Determined to make us leave the apartment, the landlord disconnected our power supply, plunging our apartment into permanent darkness. We resorted to using generators.

“As if disconnecting our power supply was not enough, the landlord disconnected the water supply to our apartment. It was at that point that my husband asked him to refund part of our rent if he truly wanted us to leave. In fact, the reason the landlord and his wife asked us to vacate the apartment is still not clear to us.

“One day, I went to take water from our bowl close to the window, to prepare food for our children and as I was returning to our apartment, our landlord suddenly appeared and held me from behind. His wife used a sharp object to attack me and slash at my face, neck and other parts of my body.

“I spent two weeks at the hospital. In fact, that I didn’t die is nothing short of a miracle. There was so much blood everywhere.”
