Court reportedly asks Monalisa Chinda to be arrested for tax evasion
In a report by The Nation News on Sunday, March 3, 2019, it was alleged that the actress had failed to obey a request asking her to show up in court. As a result, Justice Adedayo Akintoye insisted that she must be apprehended in an order reportedly given on Monday, January 21, 2019.
“The defendant has been served with hearing notice. The proof of service is in the court’s file,” a statement from prosecutor Y. A Pitan reads. The counsel mentioned this while asking for a bench warrant to arrest the actress who has reportedly been evasive.

According to The Nation, the bench warrant to arrest the actress shall extend up until April, having failed to appear in court two months earlier.
