Mercy Eke: Prominent ex-BBNaija housemate reveals wooping amount with defunct Heritage bank

Reality TV sensation, Mercy Eke has cried out over more than N100 million allegedly belonging to her trapped in Heritage Bank.

Mercy, who gained fame as the winner of Reality show via the microblogging platform X, formerly Twitter shared her fears and frustrations with her followers.

She said, “I really don’t know how to react about this… I have been hoping for the best… thinking there’s a way out… #heritagebank.”

Her post stirred reactions from netizens.

Reacting, one user, Ayanfemi Oke, commented, “CBN said they will attend to people with 5 million or lower first before they attend to people with multiple millions but it may take time.”

Another X user asked the reality star if she had an account with the Heritage Bank, and she affirmed, “I do… and have above 100m with them.”

The discussion continued with a user named Drogba of Lagos questioning her decision to put such amount in the troubled bank.

Mercy responded, “That was the bank that sponsored BBN during my set. For them to pay our money, we were advised to open an account with them… stupid me went ahead and funded the account… don’t worry I’m full of regrets right now.”
