The Kaduna Internal Revenue Service (KADIRS) has shut down many Bet9ja and other gaming shops in its ongoing operation to close all unregistered gaming offices in the state.

Head of Gaming at KADRIS Liye Anthony said this in an interview with journalists.

Anthony said that the operation, which began on Thursday, had so far shut down five offices each of Bet9ja and King Bet, two Access Bet offices and one office of Derby Lotto.



The Kaduna State Tax Codification and Consolidation Law, 2020, as amended, mandates gaming companies to register and obtain a license before operating in the state.

Section 86 of the law mandated that any gaming company wishing to operate in the state should, upon payment of nonrefundable N400,000 registration fee, apply in writing for an operating license.

Section 91 also imposed a 10 per cent tax on every stake money and the winning amount which should be promptly deducted and remitted monthly to KADIRS by every licensed gaming company in the state.

Anthony said that there were about 1,500 gaming offices across the state operating illegally without due registration and licence.

According to him, the exercise will continue until all the illegal gaming offices are shut down.

Quote
“We will continue to go after them until all the operators of the gaming companies regularised their operations and obtained the needed license to operate in the state,”
he said.

The Executive Chairman of the agency, Zaid Abubakar, told journalists that apart from operating illegally, the gaming companies were owing tax liabilities of close to N500 million.

Abubakar explained that K.C. Gaming Networks, owner of bet9ja, was withholding tax of N325 million, Bet King N68 million and Access bet N33 million.
