My Landlord Drank Beer Worth N45,000 In My Beer Parlour

A 38yrs old man, Genesis Genius, on Wednesday, told a Masaka Chief Magistrates’ Court close to Abuja that his landlord, Manzo Hassan, is owing him for beer he drank in his beer parlour.

Mr. Genesis was taken to court by Hassan for owing him N120,000 rent arrears.

Genesis agreed to pay the arrears, but insisted that his landlord should pay him his beer money first, in order for him to add to pay the rent arrears.

“My landlord always come to my beer parlour to drink, after drinking, he will not pay me, I am sure he is using it to replace the money I am owing him.

“He has been doing it, the money he is owing me amounted to a huge sum, he should pay me, so that I can pay him as well,’’ the tenant said.

The defendant told the court that his landlord has locked up the beer parlour, adding that he even chased his sales girls and bar men away.

In his response, the landlord Mr Hassan told the court that of truth, he drank beer in his tenant’s beer parlour, and deliberately refused to pay because of the rent arrears.

“As I discovered that he was not making efforts to pay me my money, I started drinking beer on credit in his beer parlour to cover up the money he is owing.

“I have not taken up to the amount he is owing me, if that is the case, he should deduct the beer money from the rent arrears and pay me my balance," Hassan said.

The Magistrate, Victor Manga, in his ruling, told the landlord to do check and balance with his tenant, since he did not object to the allegation.

He asked the court bailiff, Sule Ishaku to supervise the discussion between the landlord and the tenant in sorting out their disputes.

The magistrate ordered the landlord to unlock the beer parlor, stressing that he has no right to lock up the place.

After the check and balance, the landlord drank beer worth N45,000.
