Joke apart, rib cracker, Julius ‘Genius’ Agwu, seems to be taking his issue with Etisalat telecommunication to a higher level.
had been several rounds of applause since comedian, Julius Agwu through
his solicitor and lawyer, Festus Keyamo sued network provider, Etisalat
for allegedly blocking his line without his consent.
Agwu, through Keyamo is asking for a whopping N100, 000, 000 damages.
Julius Agwu said that the line was already registered and that despite
promises by Etisalat to rectify the fault and taking pains to meet with
them, his line is still yet to be unblocked.
According to the
popular humourist, the telecoms brand granted a third party access into
his mobile line and illegally transferred his credit in the process. The
unidentified individual also gained access into his credit card
Julius states that the incident happened when he traveled to the USA to see his family.
Read it below;
I was in America to see my new baby, I suddenly realized that my
Etisalat line was inactive. I couldn’t receive and make calls. I went to
Etisalat office in Hilton to complain and to discover what the problem
was. I was told someone asked the company to swap my line. I got very
worried immediately and queried them.
How could someone’s line
get swapped without the authorization of the owner? Even as the owner of
the line, I would issue an authorization letter to effect that. I was
worried because I personally registered the line and I told them I want
to know the staff that granted the request but they refused. It was
however rectified that very day by one Miss Joan and I was able to make
use of the line again momentarily, for that day only. I later made
several calls to the customer care and till now, nothing has been done.
to their negligence, I have lost few jobs because that is the only line
some clients could reach me on. Another painful aspect of it all is
that the person broke into my credit card account and it was used in
Rome and Milan. And as a matter of fact, I didn’t go to those places. I
have to block the card because I have lost money.
The credit on
the line was also transferred to the new line by the person who swapped
it. There is a high level of impunity in this country and nobody cares.
I’m crying out so that people can know how shameless and useless some
brands can be. I will take this matter to the Nigeria Communications
Commission (NCC) and National Human Rights Commission. I should be fully
compensated because even till now, the problem has not been rectified.”
