My husband did not kill our landlord, says blind wife
Mrs. Nekpen Obasohan, wife of Jeff Obasohan, the Benin tenant, who was accused of setting his landlord, 83-year-old Pa Joseph Iyen, ablaze has vouched that he is innocent.
According to the Edo State Police Command, who confirmed the arrest of the suspect in connection with the incident, the deceased landlord had a protracted quarrel with Obasohan, who had earlier been given quit notice on two occasions over his unpaid rent before the incident.
But in her reaction to the allegations, wife of the suspect, Mrs. Obasohan, denied her husband’s involvement in the death of his landlord. She alleged that the landlord had earlier harassed her family and threatened to kill her husband for a rent he did not owe, and that there was no quarrel between the deceased and her husband before the tragedy.
She claimed her family was asleep when they were alerted by neighbours’ screams of a sudden fire outbreak that affected two doors leading to their apartment. “
