According to this table above you simply need to choose the plan you activated on your line and send the deactivation code to 131 as an SMS.

Example:

If I subscribed to MTN monthly data plan of N5000 to get 10GB of data then I will send NO116 to 131 to deactivate the auto-renewal service to avoid being charged N5000 when am not prepared to buy another data but if I wish to give them permission to auto-renew my data once I reached expiration date or have exhausted my data then I will send R116 to 131.
