According to the report, five Globacom offices in Osun state have been sealed off by the state government over unpaid taxes totaling N532 million.
The sealing was carried out by the Osun State Internal Revenue Service, after securing a warrant from the Osun State High Court.
“Before this time, the state government had been lenient with the Globacom because of the importance of their business to both the people and the government,” OSIRS boss Dayo Oyebanji said.
“We engaged them in series of meetings with the assistance of House Committee on Communication but we are yet to get reasonable response from the company.”
“It is only the Globacom Limited that we are sealing because others especially those invited by the assembly have responded to our calls. It is only the Globacom that has not shown up. They are given one excuse or the other.”
