After living in the house for about 20years, unfotunatly the old lady died, and some of her family members came to take her goods from the room leaving her grand daughter who had completed school and working ,few cloths and other materials.After few months, Abetifi Town Council gave him a letter to renovate the house because the house was old and so he told the young lady to help him fix the house since she's not paying rent.The young Lady refused and left the house for sometime so Mr. Domfe decided to take her goods to another room and rent it to another person for GH₵400 with a period of 2years.

Mr. Domfe traveled after renting the room and when he returned, the young lady had reported him to police and he was arrested around 9:30pm.After having few misunderstanding with the police, he was then taking to court and was jailed 5 years after refusing to pay a fine of GH₵3600.00.
