Landlord cries to NBA as female lawyer unleashes thugs on tenants


Residents of 12 Ekwueme Street in Uwani, Enugu South Local Government Area of Enugu State are yet to recover from their bitter experience after armed thugs stormed their premises at midnight amid heavy downpour and threw away all their belongings.

The thugs were alleged to have been deployed by a former lawyer, Ogochukwu Victor-Okoye, engaged by the landlord of the house, Mr. Francis Obiakor.

Bewildered, Obiakor told journalists that he was shocked when his tenants called him on phone and reported that armed thugs sent by the lawyer ejected them from the apartment.

The landlord said he had filed a petition to the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, asking it to investigate and sanction the lawyer for what he called unlawful conduct.

He said it was shocking that a lawyer should behave in such a barbaric manner.

While throwing more light into the incident, he said it all began when he disengaged the lawyer and gave another counsel the power of attorney over the property.

He said the female lawyer did not initially hold a grudge as she handed over the property’s file to him, adding that two weeks after, she wrote a letter vowing not to give away the possession.
