Court orders MTN to pay damages for unauthorised caller tune deduction.

The Federal High Court sitting in Ibadan per Justice Nathaniel Ayo-Emmanuel has ordered MTN to pay Mr. Oluwole Aluko the sum of 530,000.00 as damages for unauthorised caller tune deduction.

Mr. Aluko had sued MTN in 2016 for unlawful deduction from his MTN line for caller tunes and asked the Court to award him 10,000,000.00 as damages.

Justice Nathaniel in his decision held that “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”. The learned Judge thereafter award a cost of 500,000 for the damages suffered and another 30,000 as cost incurred during the court process.
