The Ekiti State Internal Revenue Service (EKIRS) has sealed the premises of Union Bank PLC at Ijigbo in Ado Ekiti on the orders of an Ekiti State High Court sitting in the state capital (Ado Ekiti) for failure to pay a sum of N1.1 million (One Million, One Hundred Thousand Naira) as taxes on its business premises.

The Bank neither made any objection to the demand notice nor any payment until the period of grace lapsed which informed the decision of the State Government to obtain a Court order to persuade the erring bank to offset the debt.

The EKIRS, however, stated that while the Ekiti State Government is committed to the development of the private sector, tax evasion will not be tolerated.
