Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State has described the tax levy imposed on the production of bread in the state as evil.

The governor promised to investigate and prosecuted those behind the levy which drew a wide criticism last week.

He said, “The particular incident of bread tax is being looked into as I speak, we are investigating those that are behind this,” the governor, 45, said while briefing the press after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the State House in Abuja on Tuesday.

“It is evil and it is unaccepted, to say the least. I have ordered the Head of Service to issue queries to those that are responsible and they will face the law accordingly.”
