Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, goes the a popular quote of William Congrave. And though a jilted woman can indeed be dangerous, a recent incident in Lagos might just show that hell has no greater wrath than disturbed lovers. If you’ve ever seen two snakes doing the preliminaries of copulation, you will get the drift

Quadrat Yusuf, the landlady of 46 Ilupeju Road, Lagos recently suffered a broken arm in a brawl that developed from a heated argument over her alleged disturbance of two young lovers. Christian Onuoha, a Medical Engineering graduate of Yaba College of Technology and 27-year-old Hope Ezenwa, a tenant of Quadrat’s, were alleged to have used an iron rod to break the right arm of the landlady, an offence for which they were promptly arrested by the Police.

Across Nigeria gathered that trouble started when Hope, who rented an apartment from Quadrat, brought in her lover, Christian, to live with her. This arrangement did not go down well with the landlady and, though Hope still had a few months before the money she paid as rent would expire, she was asked to pack out with her boyfriend.

As fate would have it, one day, in an act reminiscent of village boys smoking out rats from their holes, the landlady decided to place her charcoal stove beside Hope’s window and commence cooking. When the lovers could no longer endure the smoke, they complained vociferously. And since there was no love lost between landlady and tenant, a shouting match ensued. Soon, it degenerated into physical assault. In the process, the woman’s hand was alleged to have been broken by the suspects. But they argued that the woman “fell from the chair during the fight and broke her hand”.

The landlady was referred to the National Orthopaedic Hospital, Igbobi, where doctors are treating her. And the lovers have been charged with assault before a magistrate’s court in Lagos. When the charge was read to the defendants, they pleaded not guilty and were granted bail in the sum of N100,000 each, with one surety each in like sum. The matter was thereafter adjourned till 2 November 2009.

Lol, but not funny still if one on the otherside imagine to consider what ordeals tenants suffers from landlords especially in Lagos state due to the scramble for recognition of fame and social status in order to exert somewhat influence of greed and pride. Inflation lurking behind every twixt of display of potent selfish inherent thoughts expressed in attitudes of minds from those meant to provide services to others in exchange. Often ignoring endeavours of balance interchange replaced with suffocating and unreasonable extortion through fashional approach of business by cohorts. Well not to explain further, i'll attempt to allow one to wonder what all this means, but as touching the current issue, its some news to refresh ones memory.
