FIRS slams N75m on Linda Ikeji, for tax evasion, as she denies ownership of N500m mansion


As culled from Capital Ng...

Mischief makers are at their worst again. Like predatory locusts swarming on a bean farm, they have gathered to pierce at the jugular of Linda Ikeji, the celebrity blogger. No sooner did the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) swoop on Linda’s Banana Island home than her traducers march to town chanting victory songs. Too many of her readers are ecstatic about her recent ordeal in the hands of the FIRS.

According to a source in the FIRS, the celebrity blogger had been evading tax payment, which has amounted to the whooping sum of N75 Million. However, when asked about the purchase of the house, it was disclosed that Linda blatantly denied ownership of the N500 Million luxurious mansion which she allegedly purchased in 2015.
Linda’s denial of ownership of the edifice resonated as sweet melody to her detractors, many of whom she had consciously or unconsciously angered by persistent news of her professional and financial success. Foes of Linda are hauling invectives at her like lances claiming she is a big fraud who gloried in misleading the public about the ownership of the building and her actual financial status. Many of them are of the opinion that Linda should have simply come clean and make everyone understand that she is just a tenant in the building.
Linda’s critics are not ready to soft-pedal on her; they are vigorously attacking Linda every minute and condemning her for the way she openly bragged about the purchase of the building in 2015.

They keep referencing the fact that Linda took to her blog to post the exterior and interior pictures of the luxury apartment calling herself a ‘self-made woman’ and bragging afterwards: “I bought a two-storey luxury house in the exclusive Banana Island area of Ikoyi…and to be honest, I still can’t believe it. It’s everything I prayed my house would be. That’s me standing in front of my house. #ProudSelfMadeWoman.”
But while Linda’s detractors take her to the cleaners over her perceived fraudulence, close friends and associates of the celebrity blogger have risen to her defence. According to them, Linda’s detractors should let her be.
“Instead of attacking a career girl who worked her ass off to attain the greatest height in her chosen career, they should learn to appreciate her fortitude and grace. And if they can’t, let them go and bite a bullet,” said a very close friend of Linda. Indeed, Linda worked very hard to put herself and Nigeria on the world map; rabble rousers should go easy on her.
As you read, the FIRS has slammed Linda with a N75 million fine and the agency has initiated measures to prosecute her in a court of law. These are certainly not the best of times for Linda Ikeji but like they always say, behind every dark pall shines a silver lining.

    1. Tax is a compulsory thing we know, but seriously if Nigerian Government is requesting for Tax from Self Made Citizens, I consider it as ROBBERY because the country itself can't even guarantee just 24 Hrs Of Electricity, No Security, No Good Roads, No Water, No Petrol, Kerosine etc... Do you think this Lady Can Enjoy Her House With Ur Government Electricity without a Generator? Or have access to Water Without Borehole? And Government want to collect Tax from her when They Have No Idea Of What Tax Is All About? Fix Ur Country And See If Citizens Won't Adhere To Ur Rules... Punk Government Fighting Their Oppositions Simply Because Of Next Election. Na Linda Money Una wan take start to fix The Country Wey Una Nor Fit Even Refine Una own Crude.... U f****kers Are There Saying You Are or Building Refineries Now.... Shaking My Head.... I don't Blame Linda For Flaunting At all, If God Blesses Anyone of U and u buy a single Car, You Wanna Tell Me U won't Upload it On Ur Instagram? Hypocrites....

    4. @ Anon 07.54, Linda started the whole drama, she boasted over a property that isn't hers, she just bitten what she can't chew, other house owners have never been in such a mess, why do you think hers is different? Because it's not her property, it belongs to Metuh.

    5. @Anon, and how did you know the house belongs to olisa metuh? Were you there when he bought it and gave it to linda. I feel pity for all of you who let envy make you bear false witness against someone. A crime so serious we were advised against it in the 10 commandments. If olisa metuh had no hand in that house, your stupid statement is between your tongue and God.

  5. Linda works hard no doubt, but she's a money launderer for politicians. Take it or leave it, someday, some people who rushed into blogging cos of her wealth, will bite their fingers.

    1. We actually see the adverts she posts on her blog. Simple familiarity with blogging will tell you that it could fetch her ridiculous amounts of money.

      What evidence do you have that she launders money by the way? If the government decides to pAY for advert (like they did in the 2015 elections) offering her a good sum of money, will she refuse? She asked her readers then for permission, and we all gave her the go ahead because everyone knew we would all do the same in that sitiation. She's doing her job and she's getting paid..cleanly.

      My question remains, what evidence do you have that she's laundering money, and I don't mean hearsay. For your peace of mind, I hope you personally witnessed this, or else you get whatever your tongue brings you.
