Osun State Government says, it will continue to clamp down on tax evaders and illegal miners wherever they operate in the state.

Special Adviser to the State Governor on Tax and Revenue Matters, Mr Gbenga Akano stated this, in an interview with speaking with Radio Nigeria.

Mr Akano confirmed that his agency had sealed off a quarry belonging to a private Company for illegal operation at Ajebandele village in Ayedaade area of the state.

He claimed that government has had several engagements with the headquarters of the company without any sign of compliance, thus the sealing off.

According to him, Osun Board of International Revenue mobilised its members to seal off the site in an attempt to recoup the tax revenue amounting to N1.5 billion naira at the quarry.

Mr Akano revealed that officials of the board who managed to block the entrance to the site were attacked by some unconventional security men believed to have been hired by the company.
