About sixteen restaurants, hotels and event centres have been shutdown by the Lagos State Government amid clampdown on tax defaulters.

The Lagos State Internal Revenue Service had sent notice of warning to the owners of hospitality businesses who have failed to pay their taxes.

Maple Cottage, Imperial Chinese Cuisine, New World Inn, Inspiro Galaria, 7th Heaven and Infinity Platinum Bar and Restaurant are among companies shutdown.

Some hospitality businesses have been shutdown in Lagos state as Babajide Sanwo-olu-led administration crackdown on tax defaulters.

The clampdown affected sixteen restaurants, hotels and event centres across the state that have failed to pay their consumption taxes between 2013 and 2020.

The closure of the hospitality businesses came almost five months after the Lagos state Internal Revenue Service (LIRS) issued a notice that March 31 will be the deadline to clear outstanding tax, before it was extended to April 14.
