DStv flouts court judgement – Counsel

A team of lawyers led by Oluyinka Oyeniji has told a court in Lagos that Digital Satellite Television, (DStv) a division of MultiChoice Group, has disobeyed its earlier order restraining price increase on its services, ITRealms reports.
Counsel in the class action suit brought against DStv informed the court that the satellite television service provider has gone ahead to give effect to its price increase contrary to the order of the court.

ITRealms recalls that Justice Chukwujekwu Aneke of the Federal High Court sitting in Lagos had on April 2, 2015 made orders restraining DStv from giving effect or enforcing its planned increase in cost of the different classes of viewing or programmes pending the determination of the Motion on Notice for Interlocutory Injunction, which was adjourned till April 16, 2016.
When the matter came up on Thursday, ITRealms gathered, the counsel told the court that DStv had breached the order by going ahead to enforce the price increase.

Oyeniji whose team of lawyers include Osasuyi Adebayo, Mufutau Olajobi, Yemi Salman and Fola Oluwole for the applicants, while DStv was represented by Moyo Onigbanjo (SAN) and M.K. Adesina among other lawyers.

He informed the court of his application for interlocutory injunction, stressing that DSTV had disobeyed the orders of the court and that relevant applications for contempt proceedings had been filed.

ITRealms was however informed that the court adjourned the matter till May 5, 2015 for the argument of the preliminary objection.
