A 44-year-old man has been arrested by the police for allegedly beating up his landlady when she asked for the 20 months rent he owed her.

The suspect has been remanded in jail due to his failure to meet his bail condition of N50,000.

PM Express reports that Ibeagha reportedly decided against paying the rent as the landlord who had leased the 3-bedroom apartment to him died in 2016.

When the victim asked for the rent he owed, the suspect reportedly flared up and insisted that he would move out from the place first.
