Court Orders Tenant To Pay N900,000 Rent Arrears

Postby wikinaira » Thu Oct 20, 2016 3:12 pm

A Wuse Zone 2 Chief Magistrates’ Court, Abuja, on Tuesday ordered one Baba Garba to pay N900,000 rent arrears to Larix Properties Limited.

The Senior Magistrate, Teribo Jim, gave the order after listening to the submissions of Hadiza Zarma, counsel to Larix Properties.

Zarma had told the court that since the beginning of the tenancy year of May, 2014 till date, the defendant had not been paid his annual rent of N450, 000.

She informed the court that the claim before the court was for payment of arrears of rent for the tenancy year of May, 2014 to June 2016.

When asked whether he was liable to the claims or not, Garba admitted the claims as presented.

“I am not denying, but I lost my job and have no money to pay my rent” he said

The magistrate delivered judgment in favour of Larix Properties Ltd.

“Having admitted the claims, I hereby enter judgment in favour of the plaintiff.

“The defendant shall pay N900, 000 as arrears of rent to the plaintiff for the period mentioned,’’ the court ruled.


I don't try to make my presence to be noticed, I only strive to make my absence to be felt
