some of the landlords for help but none was
willing to help him. Out of desperate for survival ,
baba orakwe woke up one early morning and
forcefully open the late Mrs ademola,s room.
This was just six months after her death. He
evacuated her load to the backyard and soon
rented the room to a new tenant. Many of the
tenants were ignorant of this and moreover ,
everybody knew Mrs ademola rent would expire
in about a year and half,s time . Nobody
expected the room to be opened till then except
if her children decided to come in once in a
while to pick some things.

tenant were home that they noticed a strange
face in Mrs ademola,s room . They watched the
person to know if he was a relative of the late
woman but investigations revealed the contrary .

on her way from school and asked her to take
him to her uncle,s house. She did and Mrs Jacob
explained what had happened to him. He was
