Man Wins Court Case Against MTN For Unauthorised Callertunez Deduction, Gets Awarded N530,000.
The Justice in charge, Justice Nathaniel Ayo-Emmanuel stated that MTN was found guilty for not challenging the suit.
He had this to say:
“The plaintiff has the right to allow or reject the use of a caller tune. MTN cannot force the use of any caller tune on him or anybody because it is unlawful.
Though the plaintiff sought N10 million as damages, but I hold that any damage suffered must be commensurate with the claim.
I, hereby, award a cost of N500,000 for the damages suffered and another N30,000 as cost incurred during the court process.”
The complainant filed a 10 Million Naira lawsuit against the telecommunications company last year. He alleged MTN for illegally deducting airtime from his 3 sims for caller tunes which he never subscribed to.
However, the defence council claims that MTN is unaware of the court process.
Here is what we know.
