Someone Sued MTN Over Unauthorized Caller-Tunes Deduction and Got Awarded N500,000.

If only I had the time to sue GLO.

Anyway, if you have the time and money, you just might be the next person to receive a significant sum of money, courtesy of your Telco. According to Vanguard, a Mr. Oluwole Aluko was awarded N500,000 against MTN.

MTN’s crime?

Unauthorized caller-tunes deductions.

The judge who ruled the case held that MTN had admitted guilt by not challenging the action. According to him:

“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,” he said.
