Mrs. Toyin Adelanke
Family members of a 38-year-old widow have been left in a state of shock following her sad death in the hands of tax collectors.

A petty trader, Mrs. Toyin Adelanke, has reportedly died when tax officials from Akure South Local Government Area of Ondo State wanted to collect tax from her, NewTelegraph has reported.

Speaking about her death, the victim’s 89-year-old mother, Mrs. Abike Ijiyemi, told journalists yesterday that Toyin planned to give her food the day she died in the hands of the tax collectors.
Toyin (38) reportedly died while the tax officials were trying to seize her television for failure to pay tax. It was learnt that Toyin fell down while dragging her television with the government officials which they wanted to seize because she did not pay the money demanded from her. The local government officials were said to have taken the television to their vehicle and left without attending to the woman.
It was also learnt that the woman died later and her remains were deposited at the morgue of the State Specialist Hospital, Akure.
