Court Orders Arrest Of Popular Nollywood Star



A High Court sitting in Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial city has ordered that actress popular Nigerian actress, Monalisa Chinda, be arrested for failing to pay income tax due for over a 6-year period.

Naija News reports that just like the case of the popular Super Eagles’ former footballer, Monalisa was said to have avoided showing up in court after several invitations issued in that regard.

Justice Adedayo Akintoye insisted that she must be apprehended in an order reportedly given on Monday, January 21, 2019.

“In a brief statement from the prosecutor, Y.APitan said that; “The defendant has been served with hearing notice. The proof of service is in the court’s file.”

Monalisa Chinda is alleged to be found wanting for her alleged refusal to perform her civic duty of paying her tax to the Lagos State government for her business located in Lekki on the Lagos Island.

The bench warrant to arrest the actress shall extend up until the month of April.

This is coming in few days after this News platform had reported that a court sitting in Lagos had ordered the immediate arrest of a former Super Eagle footballer, Austin Jay Jay Okocha for allegedly refusing to pay his tax and for refusing to show up in court after several attempts to make him appear before the court.

Meanwhile, Okocha had broken his silence to reveal that he had never gotten any notice from any court inviting him to appear over his failure to pay tax.
