I think this is the best thing tat has happened to airtel network as they were fined 5Million to pay for their Unsolicited Messages. at times i will be like, Am i dating airtel Network? the keep on bordering me with their annoying messages.

 Anyway Late last year, Dec 21, one Mr Emmanuel Anene filed a suit against Airtel
for continues disturbances through unsolicited messages to his line. Claiming
N200Million damages was caused due to their messages.

After all set and done the
court, therefore, decided to award him with the sum of N5 million to the plaintiff instead of the
N200 million he had claimed as damages. the worst part of it was When Plaintiff Reported to Airtel Nigeria they did not respond to the plaintiff’s suit  rather, they were busy disturbing other people with unsolicited calls and messages.
