JUST IN: Court insists Multi Choice obeys order halting price increase


A Federal High Court in Abuja has insisted that its order halting the implementation of the recent price increases announced by digital satellite television services provider, Multi Choice Communications (DSTV) remains.
Justice Nnamdi Dimgba made the clarification on Tuesday upon complaint by lawyer to the Federal Government, Babatunde Irukera that the company has declined to obey the order made ex-parte on August 20 this year.
The judge said: “My order is in force. I believe it is in force until it is set aside. My order has to be obeyed. That is my position.”
The Consumer Protection Council (CPC) sued, on behalf of the Federal Government, challenging the propriety of the latest price increases announced by Multi Choice for its services.
