Niger State Govt Shuts Eight Banks, Others For N456m Tax Debt
The Niger State Internal Revenue Service has shut down the branches of eight banks and three other organisations over N456.7m unpaid tax liability.
The Executive Chairman of the service, Mohammed Etsu, said in Minna on Monday that the exercise was carried out in line with the provisions of the relevant tax laws.
Etsu said all efforts by the service to enable the defaulting organisations to pay their respective tax liabilities yielded no positive result.
He called on other debtors to pay their outstanding tax liabilities to avoid the sealing of their offices by the service.
