The Federal Inland Revenue Service, FIRS, Tuesday, shut the Imo Transport Company Limited, ITC, in Owerri, over a N42 million tax debt incurred between 2008 and 2016.

The sealing of the company was done by an FIRS enforcement team, led by Ruth Mandeun. The team leader told the ITC that the FIRS had come to execute a warrant of distraint served on the company following futile attempts to make it fulfill its tax obligation to the federal government.

Although, the management of the transport company showed resistance, but later cooperated when it realised the government revenue-collecting agency had complied with due processes in carrying out the exercise.
