Court Orders Restraining Order over DStv Tariff Hike

Here Is The Easy Money-Making Trick Everyone Is Talking About! Learn More Here!

The Competition and Consumer Protection Tribunal in Abuja has issued an interim order restraining Multichoice Nigeria Limited from increasing the tariffs on its DStv and GOtv packages, which were scheduled to take effect from May 1. The order was granted in favor of an Abuja-based lawyer, Festus Onifade, who sought to prevent the price hike pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice.

To ensure that Multichoice is aware of the order, the tribunal has ordered that the interim order be pasted at the company’s corporate headquarters, as well as any known address of its branches across Nigeria.

Additionally, the order should be sent to Multichoice’s known email address, social media handles, and any other means of communication publicly known for the company.

The tribunal’s decision to issue an order of substituted service came after the bailiff alleged that the staff at Multichoice’s Abuja office refused to receive the order and other court documents. The bailiff claimed that one of the company’s top managers instructed him to send the documents to the Lagos office, which is the headquarters.

By issuing the order of substituted service, the tribunal aims to ensure that Multichoice is properly served with the order and is aware of the restraining order against increasing its tariffs and the cost of its products and services.

This development follows the tribunal’s initial order stopping Multichoice from implementing the price hike pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice filed before it.
