Lagos govt gives actress Iyabo Ojo 7 days to pay N18m tax or risk jail

The Lagos State Government has given popular Nollywood actress, Iyabo Ojo seven days to pay the sum of N18,640,092.00 as personal income tax or risk jail.

The Lagos government in a letter sent to the actress accused her of owing N7,376,000.00 tax for the year 2022 and N11,264,092 in back taxes for the 2021 tax year.

Responding to the letter on Monday, Iyabo Ojo criticised the method used to determine what she described as an exorbitant tax bill she received.

Sharing the picture of the bill on her Instagram page, she said: “@jidesanwoolu @lagosstategovt, please, how do you people come up with these outrageous personal income taxes you send on a daily basis?

“After paying for different types of taxes for one’s businesses, house & all…. you still come up with all this huge amount and give me 7 days to pay up, lol.

Last time, you people asked me to come to your office, I came, you asked me to explain and declare what I earn, which I did with my tax consultant, but no you did not respond to my letter, because you want me to pay you an outrageous amount that I do not have, make I go thief ni? I ask again, ‘How do you people come up with such outrageous bills?’

What have you people ever done for me as a government? NOTHING. Since you guys insist, You can gladly come and close down my business, arrest me, jail me, or kill me for all I care, we all will die one day.”
