Yesterday, June 22, 2016 popular blogger, Linda Ikeji was accused of evading tax and denying her Banana Island mansion.

The former model was said to be in trouble with the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) for evading N75 million tax bill. Reports suggest that the FIRS slammed her with a staggering N75 million tax bill and some of the tax levies are reported to be related to the purchase of her N500 million mansion.

Now, Linda exclusively told Pulse those rumours are false as she works as an individual and not a company.

According to her, “Firs go after companies not individuals. And I was operating as an individual,” she said.

Linda Ikeji who was alleged to have said she is not the owner of the Banana Island Mansion had earlier this year claimed to be hers had this to say about that. She told Pulse, “And the Banana house is mine 1000%..lol. Proudly mine and I would never deny it.”

Meanwhile, the heated banter between popular blogger, Linda Ikeji, and Star Boy Entertainment singer, Wizkid has now ended.

Ikeji settled her quarrel with the singer at the office of the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni.

Ikeji stated that she wanted peace when the police chief inquired about her interest in the case.

She wrote, “So Wizkid and I met with the Commissioner of Police today and when the Commissioner asked me what I wanted them to do with the case…I told him that I wanted peace.”

“And the reason why I insisted on peace and not to drag the matter further i.e go to court, is because Wizkid and his lawyers have been apologizing since Friday, up until today!

Linda Ikeji had earlier reported Wizkid to the Lagos State Commissioner of Police following the latter’s outburst on Instagram.
