The GRA team during the arrest said: “we have been here before, and we transacted business with you, and you were supposed to issue the Commissioner General’s invoice as a VAT registered taxpayer, and you did not and under our laws, Section 41, it is an offence, and so we are going to immediately hand you over to the CID to carry on with the next line of action.”
