Nigerian singer Eedris Turayo Abdulkareem, popularly known simply as Eedris Abdulkareem, has reportedly been arrested for beating up his landlord.
According to the DailyPost, the singer accused the landlord, identified as Oladipo Abimbola, of sexually harassing his wife.
The landlord, on the other hand, accuses Abdulkareem of refusing to pay his accumulated electricity bill of roughly N535,000.
The “Nigeria jaga jaga” singer reportedly forced his way into Oladipo’s home to beat him up after he asked Ikeja Electricity Distribution company to disconnect his light over the unpaid dues.
Eedris Abdulkareem has, at the moment, not denied the claims of assault, claiming that Oladipo harassed his wife sexually.
According to the landlord, he was unaware that Eedris was to be his tenant because his wife rented the home on their behalf.
Moreover, Eedris Abdulkareem claims that Oladipo was previously arrested over sexually harassing another female tenant.
Investigations into the matter are still ongoing. We will bring you the updates as it unfolds.
