A tenant, Mr. Muritala Bankole, has landed in trouble after he was caught sprinkling a black substance suspected to be a charm in the compound over his inability to meet up with payment of rent.

Source reports that the incident happened at Magaji Street in Abaranje in Ikotun area of Lagos where they reside.

It gathered that Bankole had mixed the substance with salt and water and chanted the name of his landlady, Olapade Afusat, while he moved round the compound at night.

The landlady claimed that he did so in order to kill her or use the potency of the charms to prevent her from demanding any rent from him and then take over the house.

The landlady was said to have caught him at night while he was doing the incantation and sprinkling the substance in the compound and handed him over to the police at Ikotun Division.

At the police station the police asked to know from Bankole why he did so but he was unable to give satisfactory response as the landlady was said to have claimed it was a ploy to skip rent payment and take over her house which she inherited from her parents.

The police found Bankole culpable and charged him before Ejigbo Magistrates court for conduct likely to cause breach of public peace.

He pleaded not guilty. The prosecutor, Supol Kenneth Asibor, did not oppose his bail but asked court for a short adjournment for trial.

Thus, the Presiding Magistrate, Mr. T.O. Shomade, granted Bankole bail in the sum of N50,000 with two sureties in like sum.

He was remanded in prison custody pending when he will perfect the bail condition.

The matter was adjourned till 21st November, 2018.
