Osun Seals Dangote Quarry Over Alleged N1.5bn Tax Default

Dangote Quarry in Osun State have been sealed by State’s Board of Internal Revenue Service over alleged N1.5bn Tax Default.

The tax enforcement team which was led by the Special Adviser to Governor Rauf Aregbesola on Tax and Revenue Matters, Mr Gbenga Akano sealed the entrance to the site.

The Dangote Quarry, located at Ajebandele, Ayedaade local government, is said to be owing the state government about N1.5 billion tax.

He explained that the company has been allegedly evading tax since it started operation on the land many years ago and several letters have been written to the company but yielded no result.

About 30 private local security operatives attached to the company who were suspected to be members of Oodua People’s Congress (OPC) attacked the tax enforcement team in an attempt to prevent them from sealing the quarry.

Akano added that the private security operatives allegedly shot at the officials of the IRS, seized their phones and gadgets and harassed them.
