Nigerian Tenant kills landlord, landlady, sets house ablaze

The Akwa Ibom State Police command has confirmed the incident and released the name of aNigerian man who kills his landlord, landlady before setting the house on fire.

The house is located at Asuquo Eyo Street in Ifa Ikot Okpon in the Uyo Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom state. Daughter of the deceased, Ms Emem Akpan, narrated the incident to reporters, saying that the tenant-landlord dispute started when her father asked Ime to move out of his house.

Akpan said that the suspect refused to park out and threatened that if her father insisted on ejecting him, he would kill them and burn down the house.

"We thought what he said was just a mere threat. None of us could believe that Ime was capable of doing what he said. Two days ago, we saw him bringing worn-out tyres into the compound. We didn't know he had a plan".

"Yesterday, before we left for church in the evening, he brought 20 litres of fuel, more than what his generator could contain. I remember a neighbor asking him what he was going to do with such amount of fuel, but he told him that he was going to run the generator overnight".

"This is what we saw this morning as we returned from church, that the fuel and worn-out tyres were weapons used by the assailant to kill my parents," she said.
