A cleric, Rev Emmanuel Chukwuma has sued his former tenant, Samson Dolor for allegedly owing him two months’ rent of N18,000 and threatening physical assault on him at Amawbia, Anambra.
When the matter was mentioned, the presiding Magistrate, Mrs G.U. Onyekuru of Magistrate Court 111, Awka wondered the need for suing when the accused had packed out of the premises.
“In some cases, plaintiffs were grateful to see troublesome tenants evacuate their houses even when owing more than two months,” she said.
Earlier, the prosecuting counsel, Immaculata Okonkwo told the court that her client would have let go the rent but for an ugly incident that happened.
“My client never had plans to take the accused to court over the rent he owed him but for a confrontation the accused displayed.
“Dolor accosted my client and started abusing him for ejecting him out of his house and threatened dealing with him if need be.
“This made my client to mandate me to sue him to court for justice to be done on the matter before them,” she said.
The magistrate however, adjourned the matter to July 17 for further hearing.
