Madueke Enusor: For me if you know that you can’t tolerate people’s behavior or there character in your house done rent it to them please the same thing to tenants too if you know you can’t obey the rules of the landlord done rent the house, find a house when they own is not living with you simple to avoid this story that touches
Queen Xter: I guess its not the first time the landlord is doing that to him, for Christ sake, u have to right to question ur tenant on how they live their lives…cos this face am seeing here doesn’t look remorseful at all…rip though
Egwu Samuel: Seriously it very sad though…
But come to think of it this landlords staying in same house with their tenant should always mind their business….
One was peeping through my wind the last time.
Marcus Peters: I am not in any way in Support of the Tenant killing his Landlord, but I think this will Serve as a Lesson to all Landlord/Landlady who always poke their Nose in their Tenants Affairs.
Whoever He/She brings home should be none of their Business. He just died out of Jealousy for no reason 🤷🏻♀
Oguche Justina: We are just saying our own may be the landlord have been complaining he didn’t want to hear to build house is not an easy thing once u no u can’t Coop up with the landlord u have to pack but is for ur own good
Edison Nwaokolo: Some landlords treat tenants as if they are in a dometry why didn’t you report him to the police since you know that what he was doing was wrong a big lesson to others, But the man didn’t do it well at all because he have no right to take life
