According to her, the said lawyer refused to show them any court ruling giving them the right to take over the property.

When the family implored the lawyer to wait for their own legal representative to arrive, their plea fell on deaf ears.

She said they jumped over the fence, broke into the apartment and started throwing their things out.

She tweeted:

"Hello Nigeria!! I have never been this distraught my entire life, waking up in the morning to be ambushed by thugs, police men and a self acclaimed lawyer to put us out of our property of 30years. No prior notification, nothing.
"While the lawyer refused to tender legal court ruling for possession of the property, this is a copy of what was pasted on the gate just this morning on their arrival. We asked them to wait while our lawyers get to the house but they refused.

Nigerians react

@DrJoeAbah said:

"I am sorry that you and your family have been put through this. I suggest that you engage a lawyer as soon as you can. In the meantime, please look after your mum and try and see whether you can get temporary shelter from a family member."

@beauty2xcel said:

"Even me that was served a notice, I'm staying a year and 6months before I vacate this apartment!
"Otherwise, we see in court!"

@Ayam_UncleP said:

"So many things seem to be wrong with this. Even if you are not up to date with your rent; you should be given a 6months notice to vacate, and another 7days to vacate should you flout the first. Que- are you sure this property hasn't been in litigation?"
