The closure, which started on Tuesday, has paralyzed activities in both resorts which serve as the biggest hospitality and tourism spots in Calabar, thereby leaving fun seekers, tourists and visitors alike stranded.

Vanguard gathered that FIRS officials entered the premises of the business resorts with heavily armed security men and sealed off their main offices.
