Court Issues Arrest Warrant For Monalisa Chinda

A High Court in Lagos has reportedly ordered that actress Monalisa Chinda, should be arrested for failing to pay income tax over a 6-year period.
It was alleged that the actress had failed to obey a request asking her to show up in court.
As a result, Justice Adedayo Akintoye, insisted that she must be apprehended.
“The defendant has been served with hearing notice. The proof of service is in the court’s file,” a statement from prosecutor Y.A Pitan read. The counsel mentioned this while asking for a bench warrant to arrest the actress who has reportedly been evasive.
Monalisa Chinda is alleged to have refused to pay tax to the Lagos State government for her business located in Lekki, Lagos Island.
The accusation has resulted in a 2-count charge, one of which alleged “failure to furnish and file annual tax returns for the purpose of personal income taxation with the Lagos State Internal Revenue Service (LIRS) contrary to Section 94(1) of the Personal Income Tax Act 2004 (as amended).”
According to reports, the bench warrant to arrest the actress shall extend up until April, having failed to appear in court two months earlier.
