Court Seizes Furniture from Hipco Musician Christoph for Failing to Pay US$300 Rent

MONROVIA, Montserrado – The Monrovia City Court has ordered the arrest of Christopher Nyengar, popularly known as Christoph, and others if they are unable to pay their rent. The court also ordered all properties belonging to the musician to be seized.

The Judge has ordered the sheriff to sell the materials to recover the full amount owed or arrest the defendants if the money does not reach full amount in question.

The hipco musician was evicted from his Old Road residence and dragged to the Monrovia City Court for not settling with his landlord. The court’s action against Nyengar was based on a complaint from James Karha.

Nyengar and others owe a total of US$1,801 in rent, and of that amount, the musician owes US$300. The materials seized from Nyengar’s home include mattresses, a refrigerator, a dining room set, and other furniture. They will remain at the court until the amount is paid.

Others evicted along with the musician are Joan Sarah Hughes, Princess Conrad, and Bobby Weah.

“You are hereby commanded to seize and expose to sale the goods, chattel, properties, and money of the above-named defendants to recover the full and just amount of US$1,801 in these proceeding,” Judge Garnett said.

“In the event, the said amount is realized, you are ordered to pay same over to the plaintiff, but if the said amount is not realized, you are ordered to arrest the living bodies of the said defendants and bring them before this honorable court to be dealt with in accordance with [the] law.”

Christoph is most popularly known for hipco songs such as “Hold Your Polaruh” and “Woomi.”
