Gbade Metibemu, a landlord whose house is located at Apollo Street in the Makoko area of the state has been arrested by the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly stabbing to death his four months tenant.

Metibemu stabbed the deceased with a knife after they had a disagreement. The Landlord had earlier asked the decease to vacate the plank apartment because he had warned him to stop messing up the slum with his babies faeces.

The Landlord went into another heated argument around 10pm on Thursday with the 35-years-old Abraham which led to fight. The Landlord stabbed Abraham in a chest and quickly ran to Adekunle Police Stationto file a report that one of his tenants tried to stab him.

Abraham could not survive the injuries as he passed away in the hospital. When the news of his death spread all over, Metibemu was detained in the police station.

One of the residents  identified as Christian Nwankwo said that Metibemu was always known for insulting and fighting his tenants.

In his words, “Abraham packed into the house four months ago. He was well-behaved and good-mannered and those were attributes that endeared him to us. His room is beside the landlord’s.

 “However, about a week ago, the landlord started complaining that he should stop spreading children clothes on the washing line. He also complained about the faeces of his baby, which he said was soiling the house.
 

“He started threatening him to leave or he would kill him. We thought it was a joke.”

The wife and children of the suspect were taken to their family house as irate mob destroyed his properties.

The Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos,  who confirmed the incident, said the suspect had been transferred to the State Department of Criminal Investigation and Intelligence, Yaba.
