The Delta state government, in its ground rent liabilities recovery drive, on Wednesday slammed some business outfits in the capital territory with seal-up penalty.

The state Taskforce on Ground Rent effected the seal-up during an enforcement exercise in Asaba.

It was gathered that the action was due to the repeated refusal on the part of the business owners to pay up their ground rent liabilities. 

The state government, it was also gathered, frowned at how its citizens would fail to perform their civic obligations until force was applied.

It, therefore, warned business operators who may want to toe the same line to have a rethink or suffer same fate.

Business outfits which were sealed up included a prominent hotel along Nebisi Road, an automobile workshop and a quarry business outfit, all in Asaba.

The taskforce carried out on-the-spot assessment of business premises to determine ground rent payable as part of the ongoing operation.

Business premises assessed and served demand notices were four hotels and a bank, among others.
