A bench warrant for the arrest of actress Monalisa Chinda Coker for tax evasion has been issued by a Lagos High Court in Igbosere.
The order was made by Justice Adedayo Akintoye following an application by the Lagos State Ministry of Justice, alleging that Monalisa Chinda had repeatedly failed to honor a court summons.
Monalisa Chinda is facing a two-count charge of a 6-year failure to file annual tax returns and failure to pay income tax in respect of her company, Monalisa Code Productions which run in Lekki.
Prosecution counsel, Y. A. Pitan told Justice Akintoye that Coker had not appeared in court since 2017, when the charge was filed against her.
