Edo Guber: Landlord sacks five tenants for supporting APC
For supporting the All Progressives Congress, APC, against the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the forthcoming Edo governorship election, a landlord, David Agberemole, has evicted five tenants in his house located in Uzea Community in Esan North East Local Government Area of the state.
Lamenting their ordeal, The Nation reports that the tenants, Mr Sylvester Chukwuemeka, Okosun Christiana and Ogbeide Elizabeth, stated that they had suffered untold hardship from their landlord for not supporting the PDP, for which the landlord has sympathy.
One of the tenants, Okosun Christiana who spoke in her native Esan dialect said, “We don’t have any problem, just party differences, he told us he wanted everyone in the house to support PDP, because he is a member of the party, but I refused.
Chukwuemeka called on relevant authority to come to their aid just as the Acting Executive Chairman of Edo State Internal Revenue Service, Barr. Emmanuel Usoh, according to the report, has given the evicted tenants some bags of cement and money to build their own houses.
