Justice Nathaniel Ayo-Emmanuel who passed the judgement, held that MTN had found itself guilty by not challenging the suit.

In his Judgement, he 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.”
