HARARE, July 8 (Reuters) – Nigeria’s revenue service said on Thursday it had instructed banks to freeze the accounts of MultiChoice Africa and its Nigerian subsidiary because the companies had refused it access to their servers for auditing.
The banks would have to recover 1.8 trillion naira ($4.4 billion), Federal Inland Revenue Service executive chairman Muhammad Nami said in a statement.
