Nigerians Warned Against Renting A House In Iyana Oworo, Lagos by pocohantas(f): 8:31pm On Apr 24
Twitter user @alexlobaloba has taken to the bird app to warn Nigerians against renting a particular property. In his words…

If you’re looking for an apartment around Iyana Oworo & agents are saying there’s a 3-storey building with multiple apartments, has running water, it’s trekkable to Iyana Oworo bus stop, you can see 3MB from the house & it’s direct from the landlord.

Ask if it’s on Palace road?

If yes, flee!

I don’t want to mention the name, but residents of the area and past tenants of the house already know where I’m talking about.

Most of the apartments in the house are either mini flats or self contains. Tenants in that house barely live through their rents.

None of my friends did!

That was the first house I’ll see a room and parlour self contain without ventilation, the only ventilation was through the door.

Currently, as I am writing this the ground floor my friend stayed for 9months before moving out is sinking gradually.

The comments are scary. Seems half of Lagos lived in the said house. That isn’t surprising considering they never exhaust their rental period. Let’s be careful o.

Comments from past tenants…

@TellDTruthh: When I moved in, I started seeing hell after three days. For a whole year, water never crossed my apartment. I had to buy water to cook and wash my clothes, but I still pay for water monthly. If I don’t, he’d disconnect me. He’s a tyrant

@Asatsanchez: Lemme add for knowledge sake.

Landlord is an ex convict. Man was part of the drugs dealer clean out obasanjo did. Has strong foot in Lagos Island, so he is well placed for violence. He's also very unreasonable. So you know who you're dealing with.

@Carisfoods: Akindele house, we stayed there we couldn't finish our 1yr. Earthworm on the bed, dampness, if u don't use lamp in the afternoon u can't see anywhere. Mushroom on the wall. U can still chop beating if u no pay his rent on the 5th of the month ur rent will expire

No 59 okemu Street, oworo, Lagos. That is the address beware of the house. It is a disaster waiting to happen. The house is sinking already

@AdenijiMikel: Is like u did not know this man,a man dat slap DPO oga forget this man is a beast and until he his tame he won't stop that rubbish

@Modmatty: I saw a earlier tweet about the house. They even mentioned the landlord's name. They said he beats tenants and his vendors alike.

@Pweetylivia: One day in this house, I slept off with my “office laptop” on the floor. Then I woke up around 3am to see my room flooded with my laptop swimming in a pool of salt water. Apparently,opened tap water from someone’s bathroom upstairs entered my room. That laptop “packed up”.

@EvenOurFaith: Wait, your water supply is from the ocean

@Pweetylivia: Yes. The man even demolished the fence demarcating the house from the ocean

@Adegoke: Just got an apartment there last month. 350k for a room without ventilation, no service, no water.

Man is depressed but acting strong.

When a new tenant is moving in basking over having obtained a too-good-to-be-true deal not too far from the island, other tenants would be looking on with side eye, shaking their heads and saying to themselves- “should we tell him?”

I don't see what some landlords derive in terrorizing their tenants. Eventually, they will be found out and people will avoid their property. Nothing so hard in living peacefully and giving people peace. If you look carefully those wicked landlord na people wey no ever believe say them fit achieve anything for life.

But people are still renting and this has been going on for years. This is an organized racket. Why would anyone rent a flat in a property with over 100 rooms? Even if the landlord is not mad, co-tenants would be mad na.

The man is a convicted drug kingpin. His notoriety didn’t start today.

They should threaten him back too with violence or bigger connections na. They should treat his fork up. Or ex-tenants who have mouth or know people that has, should charge him to court. Maybe for human rights abuse or something, anything. I don't believe anyone is untouchable at all o. Absolutely no one is. (Even emperors or presidents with the tightest securities CAN be gotten. Just a rebellion seed in an aide's mind) and then slip a poison in his food or plan an ambush. There are just levels of power. I don't see a person being completely powerless, still persons being helpless.

Normally too, people should have badmouthed him so until tenants start reducing and finally not a single person will come to rent from him. I hope this tweet too helps with that.

Babe see ehn, make we no just enter this kind trap. It is always easier to talk when you are not in that situation gaangaan. If say na only women, we for talk say they are weak. But even men dey collect. Family men join sef.

His house is rated poorly on Google Map, but I doubt it occurs to them to check it out. I guess desperation follow for the matter too.

Seems like no regulations exist in that area. Hopefully everyone living there will not renew their rent. Pack out at the end of the year and let him eat his house.

The catch is the 280k,
Secondly, it seems to be closer to the island and way cheaper than most houses you would see these days.
Let's say when one rents the house and pays a total package of 350/400k as against the whooping sum of 600/800k most agents would pressure you to pay in order to get an apartment close to the island, unsuspecting tenants would readily grab the offer with both hands.
Truth is, that landlord na werey and he needs a fellow werey to teach him a hard lesson, perhaps he still thinks he's in prison where he commands attention and bullies fellow inmates forgetting that the masses now have a voice.
Wicked man with wicked vibes!!

This country is a literal jungle and you have to learn to pick your battles.

Most of these people are high level political thugs who provide critical support during elections. So they are basically allowed to do whatever

Some are people who have ties or favors to senior politicians

And this is Nigeria where every official or his superior can be bought.

Look at the Ikoyi building collapse. There was a highly publicised arrest and shutdown of the site. Yet after all the dust settled construction continued without approvals.

This is really the best that can be done. Alert people so no one with sense goes there. He can turn the building to short time for agberos.

I sha know Nigerians are perpetually complex and contradictory people.

So much hot air, so much brags, so much shouts and loud mouth and agbari and threats and pride in traditional and spiritual higher powers and arrows, yet the country is a bumbling pool of human rights abuse and no one can do anything.

They can threaten and beef "car-owner and jollof-eating" innocent fellow neighbours, but to channel that energy to people that actually oppress them, they won't.

Like this David guy used to say, there is no elite class in Nigeria, because it is only in Nigeria that people who have money will still be receiving the same ill-treatment as paupers. Their monies can only get them so far and a few luxuries. Because I'm sure the people that stays in that same Ikoyi have money or vested interest in that building. Or maybe its crashing would negatively affect them, somehow, but here we are.

See that Syl's father too of Dowen. Wo.

That landlord should try and give that house to a level headed individual or an estate company to manage since it's getting bad publicity...

Those that were complaining of using lamp in the afternoon, didn't they inspect the house before they moved in?..Is it not reasonable to assume that when another imposing building or a giant wall is next to your windows, it block visibility?

I know how some tenant's behaviour.. after their rent expires, they won't like to pay up like gentlemen and ladies that they are...My husband lost his job, children school fees, we haven't eaten for 2 days always their major excuses... When they see someone that can't stand their bullshit, they can't wait to disappear...

He should try and repair it.. work on the complaint on the ground floor of the building and hand it to someone with people management skills..If it's that building I saw on that pic, I think it's a lovely building..
