Managing Director of MultiChoice Nigeria Limited, operators of Digital Satellite Television (DStv)Mr. John Ugbe, may be heading to jail for allegedly violating a court order.
Recall that two Lagos-based lawyers, Oluyinka Oyeniji and Osasuyi Adebayo had on April 2, 2015, secured an interim injunction restraining the company from effecting its proposed 20 per cent increment on subscription fee on the DStv.
Well, the two lawyers have commenced contempt proceedings against Ugbe, for allegedly violating the order.
Ugbe, alongside the Public Relations Manager of the company, Caroline Oghuma, are liable to being jailed if found guilty of the allegation.
But lawyer for MultiChoice, Mr. M.J. Onigbanjo (SAN), said the order was wrongly made.
The case was adjourned till May 5, 2015 for further hearing.
