Banana Island Mansion is Mine 1000% - Linda Ikeji Responds To Rumours She Denied Owning Her Banana Island Mansion Over Tax Evasion Trouble with FIRS 5

Earlier today, it was widely reported online and on social media that the Federal Inland Revenue Service revealed that self acclaimed Africa’s richest and most famous blogger, Linda Ikeji, had been evading tax payment, which has amounted to the whooping sum of N75 million.

A source in the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) has exclusively disclosed to TheCapital.ng, that self acclaimed Africa’s richest and most famous blogger, Linda Ikeji, had been evading tax payment, which has amounted to the whooping sum of N75 million.

The source went further to disclose to the publication that when the celebrity blogger was questioned about the purchase of her widely reported Banana Island multi-million naira mansion, she blatantly denied ownership of the N500 million luxurious property which she reportedly purchased in 2015.

As the news went viral online and on social media, the blogger’s critics pounced on her, vigorously attacking her every minute and condemning her for the way she openly bragged about the purchase of the building in 2015.

They keep referencing the fact that Linda took to her blog to post the exterior and interior pictures of the luxury apartment calling herself a ‘self-made woman’ and bragging afterwards:

“I bought a two-storey luxury house in the exclusive Banana Island area of Ikoyi…and to be honest, I still can’t believe it. It’s everything I prayed my house would be. That’s me standing in front of my house. #ProudSelfMadeWoman.”


But while Linda’s detractors take her to the cleaners over her perceived fraudulence, close friends and associates of the celebrity blogger have risen to her defence. According to them, Linda’s detractors should let her be.

“Instead of attacking a career girl who worked her ass off to attain the greatest height in her chosen career, they should learn to appreciate her fortitude and grace. And if they can’t, let them go and bite a bullet,” said a very close friend of Linda. “Indeed, Linda worked very hard to put herself and Nigeria on the world map; rabble rousers should go easy on her.”

 Speaking exclusively with PulseNG over the widely report story, Linda Ikeji said that 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.

She went further and claimed that the banana island multi-million mansion belong to her. “And the Banana house is mine 1000%..lol. Proudly mine and I would never deny it,” she told Pulse.

However, the popular blogger didn’t disclose if truly she evaded tax in the tune of N75million or whether she has succesfully sorted out the alleged issues with Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS).
