It was like a script off Nigerian movie
industry, as not less than 10 tenants
died at a stretch in a mystery
circumstance in a house in Kajola Street
off Dorcas Road, Ejigbo, Lagos suburbs
in the last two years.

P.M.EXPRESS gathered that other
tenants, in the house already named
‘Rent and Die’ by neighbours, have since
flee the compound irrespective of their
outstanding tenancy.

Our correspondent learnt that the
house’s landlord died two years ago and
was buried inside the compound. But a
little while after the burial, the tenants,
mysteriously started dying one after
another.

Before they realised the import of the
mysterious serial deaths, 10 tenants
have gone and this instill fear on other
tenants who were forced to quickly
parked out from the house.

It was learnt that apart from the serial
deaths, the residents begun to suffer
economic misfortune as most of the
well-to-do tenants left the house almost
in penury.

When our correspondent visited the
house on Monday, the house was
deserted and the gate was padlocked
indicating that no more tenant living
there.

The landlord, simply identified as, Alhaji
died at Mushin, Lagos where he lived but
was brought to his Ejigbo house for
burial.

One of the tenants told P.M.EXPRESS
that few weeks after Alhaji’s burial, they
beginning to observe strange things
culminated in tenants dying one after
another in the house till 10 of them died
and buried.

According to the tenant, the first death
was noticed when a tenant, an elderly
woman lost two sons and were buried.
The death moved to another female
tenant who lost her husband and then
another male tenant lost his wife.

It was gathered that two bachelors died
in quick succession. While the tenants
were still mourning their deaths, other
deaths were recorded in other
apartments which prompted the whole
tenants to realise that the deaths were
no longer natural and decided to pack
out of the house.

When our correspondent contacted one
of the landlord’s relations, who lived but
also parked out of the house, she
confirmed that there were strange deaths
in the house and all the tenants had to
move out at the same period.

She said the serial deaths of those
tenants had put the family on the spot
subjecting them to a lot snide remarks.
She explained that they had to consult
both Islamic clerics and pastors for
spiritual consultations and to help out in
appeasing, if necessary, any spirit behind
it.

A pastor, Mrs Jacinta Ogbedelote of
Jacinth Foundation Ministry, a.k.a
Precious Stone in Ejigbo told
P.M.EXPRESS that the tenants should be
blame for their lack of spiritual
understanding.

According to her, the tenants ought to
have known and moved out earlier
before whatever spirit could have taken
over 10 souls in that compound.

She said the death could not be
accidental because of how it happened
but blamed it on spiritual manipulation
that needed to be uprooted.
