A LEWISHAM housing officer has been jailed after subletting properties she was in charge of and pocketing the rent.

Adeola Adenuga exploited her role to find houses for families in need while acting as a tenancy officer for Lewisham Homes – costing Lewisham Council around £150k.

In one deception, after an elderly lady died in Catford, the 38-year-old did not tell the council or find a family in need for the vacant home but cashed in and sublet the property.

Adenuga changed the tenancy agreement to various names – including her husband’s Paul Adenuga – and paid the council the fixed rent while thieving the difference.
