The revenue generating authority has also urged the citizenry to reports acts of such nature to the appropriate remedy.

“We however wish to condemn this unfortunate situation and to use this opportunity to entreat the general public to report acts or incidents of such nature to the Authority for quick redress,” the statement added.
