Innjoo Lagos office reopened: Why it was shut down

by | Jul 16, 2015

Exactly a week a go, we reported that smartphone maker, Innjoo had their Lagos HQ shut down, for alleged use of sub-standard parts. However, according to a Press Release sent to Techpoint by Innjoo, the Innjoo Lagos HQ has been back in operation since yesterday the 15th of July, 2015.

As to why the office was shut down in the first place:

Recently we introduced Smartphones and Tablets into Nigeria Market, We launched InnJoo Fire while it’s certification is still under application since we are eager to provide better products to our fans. This rarely happened before and we are patiently solving this certificate issue, we sincerely appreciate our fans and their support towards us in this trying business period.

And if it’s any consolation to aggrieved Innjoo smartphone users


 Our Lagos Office in Trinity Mall has been O PENED on 15th July,2015, and we need to inform you also that in order to provide best service to our partners and users the F riday 17th and Monday 20th declared by Federal Government has holiday will not be observed by us in order to deliver prompt service to you and to serve you better .

InnJoo has been and will always adhere strictly to the lay down laws governing business in Nigeria, we will continue to provide cost effective products. We are also committed to bringing the latest technologies and user friendly soft ware service to our users. What is more, we will keep listening to our fans to meet the market demands in Nigeria.


In summary, it appears Innjoo did not obtain the necessary approvals for the Innjoo Fire before releasing it to the market. It’s probably safe to assume that we have nothing to worry about supposedly sub-standard smartphones proliferating the market.
