Veteran musician, Eedris AbdulKareem, was arrested for allegedly beating up his landlord, over an unpaid accumulated electricity bill
The singer was arrested last week for allegedly beating his landlord on January 3, 2020, at Valley View Estate, Ikeja, Lagos.
The singer was said to have forced his way into Oladipo Abimbola compound in order to beat and strangle him for instructing officials of Ikeja Electricity Distribution ( IKED) to disconnect his house.
According to the landlord, Eedris’ wife rented the apartment on behalf of her husband and so he didn’t know the singer was to be his tenant.
Appealing to the police to come to his aid, Abimbola alleged that the singer is an antisocial and a dangerous person, adding that such people stop at nothing to carry out their threat. He also claimed that the singer constantly owed him rent revealing that the accumulated electricity bill is N535,000.
However, Abdul-Kareem denied attempting to assault the man. He alleged that his landlord had sexually harassed his wife in his absence and that all efforts to make him stop failed.
He also claimed that his landlord had once been arrested for a previous case of sexual harassment against a female tenant.
