“FIRS did not seal Intels. We only pasted a notice of tax compliance at the gate, this notice is served to companies to ensure they comply with Value Added Tax and Companies Income Tax obligations. We serve such notices all over the country, that is the mandate of FIRS. Intels case in not unique”, he explained
