Wife of the tenant, 32-year-old Kelechi Ajibo, on Tuesday, told a Masaka Chief Magistrates’ Court in Nasarawa State that her husband was having an affair with their landlady, Ngozi Ugwu.

“Sometime my own husband takes permission from our landlady before doing anything for me; when I complain, he gets annoyed with me.

“They both go out occasionally and my husband did not see anything wrong with that.

“It was when I started condemning the act that she (landlady) asked us to pack out of her house and brought my husband to court,” Kelechi said.

In her response, Ugwu denied the allegation, insisting that she brought them to court for not settling their rent over a period of time.

News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the verbal exchange between the two parties almost resulted in a brawl during the trial, but for the timely intervention of the Magistrate, Mr Victor Manga.

Thereafter, Kelechi pleaded with the court to give her and her husband two weeks to pack out of the compound but the landlady objected, insisting that they must pack out immediately.

Manga therefore ordered the defendant to pack out of the compound on or before February 13.

He also directed both parties to write an undertaking to stay in peace, warning that violation of the court order would be viewed seriously.

Meanwhile the landlady had pleaded with the court to recover her accumulated seven months rent arrears of N70,0000, owed by the tenant.
