At the end the management issued a bank draft covering the amount owed.
In another development a law firm with the name Peasah Boadu and Co at Shiashie which also owes an amount of Ghc 10, locked up by the task force.
Mr Brahu Abune advised businesses in the country to always endeavor to pay their taxes to avoid embarrassment.
