A Popular Nigeria Singer Eedris Abdulkareem arrested for beating landlord over unpaid electricity bill
Veteran musician, Eedris AbdulKareem, was last week arrested for allegedly beating up his landlord, Oladipo Abimbola, over an unpaid N535,000 accumulated electricity bill on January 3, 2020, at Valley View Estate, Ikeja, Lagos.
The singer was said to have forced his way into his landlord’s compound in order to beat and strangle him for instructing officials of Ikeja Electricity Destribution ( 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.
