Gospel Singer Mercy Chinwo, husband, Drag Five Persons To Court Over Calls To Test Son’s Paternity  

A Chief Magistrate Court sitting in Abuja has summoned five social media users for “criminally def@mating” gospel singer, Mercy Chinwo; and her husband, Blessed Uzochikwa. 

According to Channels Television, in the court summons dated April 3, 2024, Chief Magistrate Emmanuel Iyanna ordered the five defendants to appear in person before the court on April 23, 2023, to answer the charges levelled against the complainants.

The complainants in the matter are Blessed Uzochikwa and Mercy Chinwo while the five defendants are Okoronkwo Ejike, Kingsley Ibeh, DJ Spoiltkid, Terrence Ekot, and Samuel Agozie.

The suit stemmed from posts made by the defendants last week after the gospel singer and her husband posted a picture of their son on Instagram. 

After the picture of the baby, who was born in 2023, was posted, the defendants alleged that there was a resemblance between the baby and another gospel singer, Nathaniel Bassey, and claimed that he was the father, an allegation that went viral.

In a criminal complaint filed by the complainants’ lawyers led by Pelumi Olajengbesi of Abuja-based law firm, Law Corridor, Mercy Chinwo and her husband said the alleged actions of the defendants amounted to cyber intim+dation, inj¥rious falsehood, and cyberstalking targeted at their persons.

The complainants said the alleged actions of the defendants are contrary to Sections 391 of the Penal Code and Section 24 (1)(B) of the Cybercrimes (Prohibition, Prevention etc) Act 2015.

This comes a day after Nathaniel Bassey wrote a petition to the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Kayode Egbetokun, to investigate and prosecute Okoronkwo Ejike, Kingsley Ibeh, Terrence Ekot and Dj Spoiltkid, for criminal def@mation and cyberstalking.
