Amid anxiety and pity by fans, BBNaija star, Mercy Eke, has explained how she allegedly got N100m trapped in Heritage Bank, which recently went under.

Last week, the Central Bank of Nigeria withdrew the operational licence of the bank and this has affected many of their customers nationwide. Mercy says she doesn’t know how to react to the development because she has  over 100 million in the account.

She lamented on X (STET): “I really don’t no how to react about this … I have been hoping for the best .. thinking there’s a way out…. #heritagebank.”
In the comment section, a fan asked, “Omg Lambo hope you don’t have acct with them?” to which Eke replied, “I do… and have above 100m with them.”

Another asked, “Why did you open an account with them in the first place?”

She noted, “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.”

Another concerned fan asked, “What is your account manager saying?”

“She lured me into fixing my money, knowing fully well there’s been issues with the bank … I don’t have words for her, I blame myself,” she said.

The reality star also disclosed that she had submitted a notice to the Nigerian Deposit Insurance Commission in a bid to retrieve her money.

Meanwhile, the commission recently commenced the liquidation process of the bank, including planned  verification and payment of the bank depositors. It, however, stated that the refund would begin with those with N5 million and below.
