Celebrity blogger, Linda Ikeji, the celebrity blogger is denying ownership of her Banana Island house estimated to cost about N500 million.
The blogger reportedly made the denial after Federal Inland Revenue Service swoop on her.
According to a source in the FIRS, the celebrity blogger had been evading tax payment, which has amounted N75 Million.
However, when asked about the purchase of the house, it was disclosed that Linda blatantly denied ownership of the N500 Million luxurious mansion which she allegedly purchased in 2015.
TheCapital.ng reports that Linda’s denial of ownership of the edifice resonated as sweet melody to her detractors, many of whom she had consciously or unconsciously angered by persistent news of her professional and financial success. Foes of Linda are hauling invectives at her like lances claiming she is a big fraud who gloried in misleading the public about the ownership of the building and her actual financial status. Many of them are of the opinion that Linda should have simply come clean and make everyone understand that she is just a tenant in the building.
Linda’s critics are not ready to soft-pedal on her; they are vigorously attacking Linda 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.”
According to eldiner.com, Linda has weighed in on the rumors, saying she will never deny ownership of the mansion.
“The Banana house is mine 1000%..lol. Proudly mine and I would never deny it,” the blogger was quoted as saying.
