Lagos: Landlord and wife arrested after tearing tenant’s face over unpaid bills (photo)

A landlord and his wife have been arrested in Lagos state after the wife slashed a tenant’s face over unpaid bills.

The landlord, Ubasinachi Ekweozor and his wife Anulika Ubasinachi Ekweozor are in custody following an attack on their tenant Oyize Peter over unpaid water and electricity bills.

According to reports, Oyize Peter was owing electricity bills and the electricity distribution company disconnected her house.

The landlord was angered by this because the tenant’s house was also connected to the pumping machine that serves the entire compound.

The landlord then called an electrician to connect the machine’s wire to his own apartment. He also got a plumber to disconnect Oyize’s pipe so she wouldn’t have access to water.

Oyize refused to be sidelined in this way so she objected and it led to a verbal altercation.

Later, after calm was restored on Sunday, March 29, Oyize was doing chores when the landlady allegedly took her unawares and used an axe to slash her on her face, leaving her with multiple lacerations.

Lagos Pastor allegedly rapes church member’s 14-year-old daughter for four years

A pastor has been arrested by the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly serially raping his member’s 14-year old daughter for four years.

Pastor Chris McDouglas Omosokpea of Peculiar Generation Assembly Church, located at No.17/19 Mututiatu Kayode Street off Ayodele Street, Mafoluku area of Oshodi, has been detained at Zone 2 Police Command, Onikan Lagos.

Pastor Douglas took the matter to Zone 2 Command after the Police at Makinde Division invited him over the allegation of defiling the victim. He refused to go to Makinde Police Division, instead, he wrote a petition to the AIG against the mother of the victim, hence all were invited for investigation over his petition.

However, during interrogation, Pastor Douglas reportedly confessed that he had been sleeping with the victim for the past four years from when she was 14 but now 18, prompting the DCP D8 to order his detention for the charge of statutory rape.

The ‘man of God’ was said to have held the victim with fake prophecies and she kept the abuses from her parents, who had been members of the Church for the past 12 years.

However, the bubble burst after the victim was no longer able to bear it, started threatening to commit suicide over the trauma and she was persuaded to open up on what she was passing through.

It was then she opened up and told her parents that Pastor Douglas had abused her for the past four years and instilled fear into her not to tell anyone.

It was gathered that the victim may not be the only person said to have been abused by Pastor Douglas who seemed to have shown remorse for his actions.

His wife was said to have known about the abuses from what she told the Police while the Police continue with their investigation over the matter.

COVID-19: FG bans street trading, hawking

Published

on

The Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 on Monday said the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd), had approved the relaxation of restriction placed on churches and mosques starting from Tuesday.

The Chairman of the task force and Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr Boss Mustapha, who disclosed this at the PTF press briefing in Abuja, said the reopening of churches and mosques would be based on guidelines issued by the task force and protocols agreed on by states.

But the Coordinator of the PTF, Dr Sani Aliyu, noted that while markets would be opened and artisans could run their business, street hawking was prohibited.

He said,

In terms of general movements, persons may go out for work, go out to buy necessary foods and for exercise, provided they abide by the curfew hours. Movement between local government areas is strongly discouraged unless for critical reasons such as health care and work.

“I will like to emphasise that it is still safer to stay at home and avoid crowds. The pandemic is not over in this country and the relaxation of some of the rules does not mean that it is safer to go out. If you do not need to go out, please continue to stay at home.

“Hawking and street trading is also prohibited and we will be looking into this in greater detail with state authorities.”

“With interstate travels, movement across state boundaries remains restricted other than the free movement of goods and essential travels. Security services are requested to please cooperate with members of the public and ensure that goods are provided with free passage, as this particular phase is directed at ensuring the economy starts moving again.

“With intrastate travel, we will implement new travel processes for areas of the country with high-burden local government areas, and this will be restricted to essential travels.”

The task force coordinator listed the new guidelines for reopening of offices in the public and private sectors.

He said,

“For the industry and labour sectors, in terms of working hours, normal working hours will apply to offices other than government offices, provided this is kept within (outside) the curfew hours of 10pm to 4am. Offices are to maintain working at 75 per cent capacity while maintaining the two-metre physical distancing.

“For government offices, they can open between the hours of 9am and 2pm. So, no changes in opening hours but can work from Monday to Friday. Prior to this, we allowed three working days. However, all persons within the Grade Levels of 14 and above at both the federal and state governments will be allowed to come to work.”
