An aggrieved landlord is the news for confiscating his tenants pot of chicken soup over unpaid rent. The tenant owed the landlord 6 months rent which he refused to pay, and also refused to vacate the property.

According to Cameroon-concord, the incident happened at Bassa neighborhood in Douala, Cameroon. Efforts made by other tenants to convince the landlord to return the pot of chicken soup proved futile.

When asked why he took such an extreme measure, the landlord said:

“This man has money to prepare chicken but does not have money to pay for his rents, has not paid his rents for the past six months.
"Each time I ask him to leave my house, he states me some articles of the Penal Code indicating that I might get into serious trouble with the forces of law and order if I kick him out within two months without notice."

Other tenants who witnessed the incident say the landlord had been quite lenient with the debtor.
Although, they admitted to the fact that the landlord was very troublesome on some days, he had handled the tenants issue quietly until that day.

 "It is just today we are learning the tenant had been quoting sections of the Penal Code to scare the landlord away," one of the tenants said.
