Some private local security operatives on Thursday attacked the Special Adviser to Governor Rauf Aregbesola on Tax and Revenue Matters, Barr. Gbenga Akano.

They also attacked officials of the Osun Internal Revenue Service.

The incident happened at a quarry reportedly belonging to Dangote Group.

The Osun Tax team was visiting the quarry located at Ajebandele, Ayedaade local government area of the state to seal the place for alleged tax default.

Bounce News gathered that the company has been allegedly evading tax since it started operation on the land many years ago.

Explaining what transpired, Akano said that the company was owing about 1.5 billion naira tax.

According to Akano, several letters had been written to the company but yielded no result.

Akano said the team had gone to the quarry but was prevented by the security men suspected to be members of Oodua People’s Congress (OPC), numbering about 30.

He added that the private security operatives allegedly shot at the officials of the IRS, seized their phones and gadgets and harassed them.
