A tenant flew into a rage when his landlord asked him to pay his outstanding rent for the previous months, according to police in Nigeria.

Ipaja police said that they have arrested 28-year-old Chizoba Nwakuro, after being accused of slapping his landlord across the face several times.

Nwakuro has been charged with one count each of breach of peace and assault. He was booked into jail, and his bail has been set at $30.

If convicted, Nwakuro faces up to three years in prison.

According to the police investigation, Nwakuro works as a fashion designer. Several months ago, Nwakuro rented an apartment in a home located on Odusola Street.

When Nwakuro did not pay his rent for several months, the landlord, Destiny Dennis, knocked on the door and asked him for payment.

The request did not sit well with Nwakuro. Nwakuro became angry and slapped Dennis across the face several times.
