A Nigerian man identified as Edward Onoriode took to Twitter to share the horrific experience he had while living in his former house.
Edward revealed that his landlady deceived him into paying the rent of the house without signing an agreement form. The landlady made the agreement form available only weeks after he had moved in, the strict rules in the form made him want to move out but she refused to refund his rent.
Rules like friends/ relatives are not allowed to live with you, the compound gate will be shut by 10 pm and will not be opened to anyone, no tenant is allowed to park cars, bus, motorcycles etc in the compound.

2006, I rented my first apartment, a single room self contain at Yakoyo Sabo, Ojodu Berger, Lagos.
I was so excited I’ve gotten an apartment of my own as a young man. Little did I know the house I rented was a hell on earth.
After making payment for the apartment, I asked the landlady for the agreement form so I can read and sign. She said her lawyer is still working on it and she will hand it over to me in a few days time.
She said I don’t have any problem and I can move my stuff in.
