Tax Invasion: Oyo Govt Seals Commercial Banks, Telecoms

The Oyo State Government  has sealed off some commercial banks as well as telecommunications masts around Ibadan metropolis, the state capital 

Director of Land Use Charge
in the Ministry of Lands, Housing and Urban Development, Esv Olufisayo Ogunbiyi who led the Enforcement team
 around the city of Ibadan, said the action was due to non compliance with payment of revenue to the coffers of the State Government 

According to the Director, Land Use Charge, the commercial banks and the telecommunications outfits have been served notices before the enforcement  team visited them.

He assured that once they pay the required Land use charge, their premises would be re-opened for business.

 Oyo State Government according to him, has zero tolerance for non compliance to its polices, hence all business  owners should ensure payment of charges to the State Government  account to ensure their businesses are not disrupted as the exercise is still continuing. 

The Director, Land Use Charge equally appealed to residents of the state to contact the Ministry on 0700 OYO LANDS (070069652637) or send an email to for enquires.

Rate payers can also make Land Use Charge Payment by visiting, while people can make an online payment by downloading Oyo State Property Reference System (OYPRS) through Google Play Store or App Store which will identify the building/property and land use charge outstanding. 

Amongst the team that went out for the enforcement  are Land Officers as well as representatives of Private Networks Nigeria Ltd, the IGR Consultant for Ministry of Lands, Housing and Urban Development.
