Should you fail to heed to this demand within 14 days from the date of receipt of this notice, we shall be left with no option but to seek legal redress or institute legal proceedings against you at your own cost or peril, and perpetual regret,” reads in part the notice.

NBS says the media business takes a lot of time, goodwill and resources to produce, promote and broadcast content.
