Nigerian actress, Cossy Orjiakor is in a dilemma and she has revealed the injustice she has suffered at the hands of her tenants who she alleges are cultists.
Ms. Orjiakor identified the erring tenant as one Akapor Gerrard, who she said slapped her when she asked him to pay rent.
The actress told PUNCH:
“I gave them notice to quit and pack out of my house since February. The first issue I had with this particular tenant was when the wife came and insulted me saying that I was dating her husband. People advised me to give them six months grace which I did. The day I gave them the notice, they came and started shouting at me. It was eight months ago.
“I went to meet him few days ago to go and meet my agent and to let us know if he was still interested in renewing his rent. His cult friend slapped me in the process. They believe that when they intimidate me, I won’t be able to tell them to pay their rents as such; they would be staying in my house free of charge.” she said.
“I am supposed to be making N2.6m every year from my property but all I have seen since this year is N100, 000. It is so sad. When you make investment and you are not seeing the profit, it can be sad. The man is even from Cotonou. His wife was the one that came to rent the apartment. They always fight in this neighbourhood. People here are scared to talk about them. But I am not scared. They are all in Eiye fraternity.”
The actress also said that she wouldn’t report the matter to the police but that she would instead take it to court.
“I can’t report the case to the police; I can only take it to court. If anything happens to me now, people will know who is behind it. Let him come out and defend himself if he feels I am saying anything bad about him.”
