One Mrs Nike Azeez who is a landlady in the Ijegun community of Lagos state, has been accused of setting the home of one of her tenants, Adeleke Shakiru on fire just to remove him from her compound. The incident happened on Tuesday April 12th.
According to PM News, Nike and Shakiru have been at loggerheads over the use of his generator in her compound.
Nike and her husband, Jamiu, had asked Shakiru to stop using his generator in their compound, a directive that caused a friction between them after Shakiru refused to heed to their request, saying he needed to use his generator to charge his phones and provide his wife and his 2 year old son some comfort.
Things between Nike and Shakiru degenerated on Tuesday when Nike got to their room, poured petrol in their house and struck a match.
Shakiru’s wife and their son were able to escape after sustaining some injuries. Shakiru says his wife called him while he was at work to say their landlady had poured petrol in their room and set it on fire. According to him, when he got home, he could only salvage a little of his properties.
His landlady, her husband and children fled the compound after she committed the act.
