Tenant kills Lagos landlord, dumps corpse in tank


A tenant, Daniel Isaac, has been arrested by personnel of the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly killing his landlord, Willy Ebinate, at his house on Owodun Street in the Ikotun area of the state.

Isaac was alleged to have killed the 50-year-old car dealer in a order to steal his Toyota Camry car that was parked inside the compound.

After perpetrating the crime, the 38-year-old tenant reportedly dumped Ebinate’s corpse in a septic tank and drove away the car.

PUNCH Metro gathered that Ebinate had gone to the port on Monday, July 22, 2019, to clear the car, but had to take it home since he finished the transaction late.

The deceased’s colleague, who did not want to be identified, said efforts to contact him after he took the car home proved abortive, adding that a case of missing person was subsequently reported at the Isheri-Osun Police Station on Thursday.

In the early hours of Friday, the colleague said the deceased’s cousin informed him that Ebinate had been murdered by his tenant, Isaac, who allegedly strangled him while he was washing the car.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Bala Elkana, said in a statement on Sunday that personnel of the command, while on stop and search duty, apprehended Isaac and his accomplice, Emmanuel Chukwu, for driving in a reckless and suspicious manner.

He stated that during interrogation, Isaac confessed to killing his landlord in a order to dispossess him of his car, adding that he was fleeing from the crime scene when he was arrested.

Elkana stated, “On Wednesday, July 24, 2019, around 5am, policemen from the Iba Police Station on stop and search duty at First Gate, Agboroko area, Iba, flagged down a Toyota Camry, which was being driven in a reckless and suspicious manner.

He stated that during interrogation, Isaac confessed to killing his landlord in a order to dispossess him of his car, adding that he was fleeing from the crime scene when he was arrested.
