CULLED FROM THE CABLE
According to The Cable, a federal high court in Ikoyi, Lagos, on Thursday struck out a suit filed by some aggrieved subscribers challenging the recent 20 per cent increase in subscription rates of Digital Satellite Television (DStv), which is operated by MultiChoice Nigeria Limited.
The aggrieved subscribers, Osasuyi Adebayo and Oluyinka Oyeniji, who are also lawyers, filed the class action on behalf of themselves and all other DStv subscribers across the country.
The plaintiffs had sought an order of the court restraining MultiChoice from implementing the new rates, which began on April 1, 2015.
But in his ruling, Justice Chukwujeku Aneke upheld the preliminary objection filed by MultiChoice, and branding the suit an abuse of court process.
