Linda Ikeji Denies Ownership of Her Banana Island Home After Been Slammed N75 million fine
Linda Ikeji is allegedly battling with officials of the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS), The Capital NG reports.
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.
According to the publication, “FIRS has slammed [Ms Ikeji] with a N75 million fine and the agency has initiated measures to prosecute her in a court of law.”
The report also adds that the celebrity blogger who many times has shown off her home on social media, including special publication including the interior photos on her blog, has denied ownership of the Banana Island home in Lagos.
This comes weeks after Lagos lawyer, Olumide Babalola, filed a suit against Ms Ikeji for using his pictures without permission and associating them with crime-related stories. The lawyer reportedly is seeking N50 Million in damages.
Ms Ikeji is yet to confirm or refute the recent report.
