A tenant in Nigeria partially blinded the caretaker of the house he was renting a room in when the caretaker, 60-year-old Levi Ogbuo, confronted him on the fact that the tenant owed three month's worth of rent.

Ogbuo confronted John about the late rent and the younger man beat him, blinding him in one eye with a wooden stool.
