The Federal High Court in Ibadan on Wednesday awarded N530,000 to Oluwole Aluko for unathorised deductions from his MTN mobile lines by MTN, Nigeria.
“Though the plaintiff sought N10 million as damages, but I hold that any damage suffered must be commensurate with the claim. He added.
The plaintiff, who is also the counsel in the case, had in 2016 filed a N10 million suit against MTN claiming the telecommunication company had unlawfully made several deductions from three of his MTN lines for caller tunes he did not subscribe to.
However, the defense counsel, Fatiullah Tiamiyu, said that MTN was not served any court process which was “the reason the company has not been represented in any previous sitting”.
