A tenant in Ondo town has killed his 75-year-old over electricity bill. The landlord named Kayode Osunkalu, was a retired civil servant at the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and owner of a two-storey building located at 17, Ayeferere street, Ondo. He was said to be hale and hearty before the unfortunate incident. He had an argument with his tenant, Tope Akideji over electricity bill that was brought to the house by the officials of the Benin Electricity Distribution Company (BEDC).
Osunkalu was said to have ordered all his tenants to pay up within 24-hours from time the bill was brought to the house by the BEDC. The move was said to have infuriated the suspect which resulted into argument between them.
The suspect reportedly held the late landlord for several minutes and allegedly beat him - an incident that made him slump and was rushed to the Ondo State Specialist Hospital where he was later confirmed dead by the Doctors.
The Divisional Police Officer (DP0) in charge of Enuowa Division, Kunle Omisakin, a Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP) confirmed the incident.
