The Federal Inland Revenue Service sealed the headquarters of the Niger Delta Power Holding Company over tax liabilities totalling N9, 831,368, 259.90.
Led by Mrs Anita Erinne, the FIRS enforcement team went to the NDPHC headquarters at the Central Business District in Abuja with a warrant signed by the FIRS Chairman, Mr Tunde Fowler.
According to the warrant, the liabilities, comprising Corporate Income Tax, Education Tax, Value Added Tax and Withholding Tax, were incurred between 2007 and 2017.
The FIRS had on Thursday also sealed the premises of defaulting companies in Lagos. Among these was Pormat Peters located in the Abule Egba area of the city over a tax debt of N504m.
A similar fate befell Niger Insurance Plc., which owes N190.9m.
The Managing Director of the insurance firm, Mr Lawal Mijinyawa, while pleading for leniency, told the FIRS team that he and the finance manager were unaware of the tax debt because they had just resumed at the firm.
The team also sealed ANSA Systems Limited located inside Dolphin Estate, Ikoyi. The company has tax liabilities totalling N17m.
