 Oluwole Aluko would wish he would be continually biled unlawfully bybtelecom giants MTN.

He has reportedly won N530,000 in a suit for unlawful deduction for his Callertunez subscription.

Callertunez is a service that enables callers to listen to a choice tune or song when they call a particular subscriber.

MTN has refused to challenge the suit, necessitating the award of the said amount to the complainant.

In his Judgement, the presiding judge, Justice Nathaniel Ayo-Emmanuel stated: “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, who is also stand in as counsel for himself in the case, had in 2016 filed a N10 million suit against the same telecom giant.
