The Chief Magistrate Court, Wuse Zone 2, has summoned five social media users for “criminal defamation” of the reputation of gospel singer, Mercy Chinwo; and her husband, Blessed Uzochikwa.


In the court summons, Chief Magistrate Emmanuel Iyanna ordered the five defendants, Okoronkwo Ejike, Kingsley Ibeh, DJ Spoiltkid, Terrence Ekot, and Samuel Agozie to appear in person before the court on April 23, 2023, to answer the charges levelled against the complainants.


The defendants had alleged that there was a resemblance between the baby and Nathaniel Bassey another gospel singer, claiming that he was the father, an allegation that went viral.


In a criminal complaint filed by the complainants’ lawyers led by Pelumi Olajengbesi, Mercy Chinwo and her husband said the alleged actions of the defendants amounted to cyber intimidation, injurious falsehood, and cyberstalking targeted at their persons.


Meanwhile, Nathaniel Bassey has also revealed that he had petitioned the Inspector General of Police Kayode Egbetokun, to investigate and prosecute the defendants whom he accused of criminal defamation and cyberstalking.
