UK landlord who leased a penthouse flat to Joseph Yobo has said he has never seen a house this dirty before. The Landlord who was visible angry said, he is horrified and has never seen such before. He claims there were marks on the carpet, a dirty kitchen and bathroom, and holes in the wall left from a flat-screen television.
“There’s bond money of £1,500, but by the look of it, it will need £5,000 to put all the damage right and I will have to call in cleaners. There are iron marks , as if left by ironing, and holes in the wall left by flat-screen TVs. I’ve never come across anything like this before and I’m just so shocked. looks as if it’s been burgled” he said.
Yobo has however denied ever living there and said his brother, Godwin was the one who lived there and paid the rent.
“It’s my name on the lease, but I never lived at the flat and I’ve never even been there. The landlord doesn’t know me and he hasn’t spoken to Gideon about this. I have property too and the landlord should have gone to the letting agents if he was unhappy,” Yobo said.
