Man Wins Court Case Against MTN For Unauthorised Callertunez Deduction, Gets Awarded N530,000.

Today, at the Ibadan Federal high court, N530,000 was awarded to one Mr. Oluwole Aluko for Unauthorised airtime deduction by MTN Nigeria.

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.
