Alleged tax evasion: Court fixes October 10 for Nollywood actress’ trial

An Igbosere High Court, Lagos State, on Thursday fixed October 10 for the trial of a Nollywood actress, Monalisa Chinda-Coker, over alleged tax evasion.

 The News Agency of Nigeria reports that trial was earlier fixed for June 5, but could not hold due to the Eid-el-Fitr holiday. At the resumed hearing on Thursday, the court fixed October 10 as the new date for trial. Chinda-Coker is facing two charges of failure to file annual tax returns and failure to pay income tax in respect of her company, Monalisa Code Productions. The alleged offences contravened Section 94(1) of the Personal Income Tax Act 2004 (as amended) and Section 56 of the Lagos State Revenue Administrative Law of 2006.
