A landlord, Mr. David Agberemole, has sent at least 5 tenants in his house in Uzea Community in Esan North East LGA of Edo State, packing for supporting APC. The tenants, Sylvester Chukwuemeka, Okosun Christiana and Ogbeide Elizabeth, who lamented their ordeal said they have suffered untold hardship from their landlord for not supporting the PDP which the landlord was sympathetic to. Christiana 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.
I told him that i have been in APC for a very long time that even if the PDP is buying me a car I prefer to remain in the APC, and he said since that is my stand; I should consider myself evicted from his house."
Also speaking, Chukwuemeka said: “I don’t understand why the landlord will just decide to drive us out of his house because we are not supporting PDP. I pay my rent regularly and this is not fair to me. The state government should come to our aid because I don’t know when it became a crime to support a party.”
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 has given the evicted tenants some bags of cement and money to build their own houses.
