 This is really a bank-customer relationship gone sour.HITV informed gistmaster that the closure of their office in Lagos yesterday is nothing but invasion despite a pending court case.
 A statement issued in Lagos today by HiTV reads
"On Monday, November 21 at about noon, heavily armed mobile policemen alongside men in suit invaded in a commando style, simultaneously, all HiTV offices in Lagos purportedly acting on some court order instituted by Guarantee Trust Bank Plc over a relationship/financial dispute between HiTV and the bank.

The invading team brandishing a court order sealed HiTV offices thereby partially paralysing activities and causing disruption in its services which has resulted to the loss of signals in some of its Hi channels locally and to its international partners.

For records purposes, we wish to state here that the invasion on HiTV property by agents of GT Bank was a total breach of the rights of HiTV as there is a pending case in court on the same issue and more but the bank in a clandestine manner went ahead to secure an order from another court which they relied on to invade HiTV premises across Lagos.

The Facts:

·      GTBank is a shareholder of HiTV and has financed a significant part of HiTV’s business activities.

·      GTBank participated in the sale of UEFA Champions League 2011/12 season (rights for which were awarded to HiTV) in a manner that was inconsistent with agreed contractual terms.

·      HiTV consequently filed in court the case regarding the improper sale of the UEFA rights along with other issues concerning its relationship with GTBank.

·      Despite there been an existing case in court, GTBank secured an order from another court and invaded HiTV business premises in different locations in Lagos on Monday, November 21 and caused significant distress and embarrassment to HiTV staff and customers.

As a law abiding organisation, HiTV will handle the issue legally and that is why it is calling on subscribers, agencies, and trade and platform partners to be calm and patient while the issue is being tackled. HiTV thanks all for the continuous patronage of the proudly Nigerian Pay TV.

 HiTV apologises for service disruption

Proudly Nigerian Pay TV Company, HiTV, is currently experiencing disruption in its services which has resulted to the loss of signals in some of its Hi channels locally and to its international partners.

This piece of news was contained in a statement signed by the company’s Public Relations Manager, Justin Akpovi-Esade. The company’s management according to Akpovi-Esade are currently working at resolving the issue.

He thanked its valued subscribers for their continued patronage even as he assured that “everything would be fine very soon. A team of competent personnel are working round the clock to ensure the issue is resolved. HiTV values its numerous subscribers and calls for their usual understanding and patience while the issue is being sorted out,” the statement read.
