UPDATE: ‘I Have Over N100m In Heritage Bank’ – Mercy Eke

by Victor Ndubuisi

Reality personality Mercy Eke has appealed for assistance after Heritage Bank’s operating licence was revoked by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), claiming that she had over N100 million in her Heritage Bank account.

Eke clarified that she created the account as a result of the bank supporting her victory in the fourth season of Big Brother Naija.

She also accused her account manager of “luring” her into the bank to fix her money even though she was aware of the problems there.

On her X handle Thursday, Eke wrote: “I really don’t no how to react about this … I have been hoping for the best .. thinking there’s a way out…. [Hash tag] HeritageBank.”


Taking to 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 fan asked, “Why did you open an account with them in the first place?” and the reality star replied, “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.”

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

Mercy Eke responded, “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.”

In an effort to get her money back, the reality star also said that she has sent a notice to the Nigerian Deposit Insurance Commission.

The Nigerian Deposit Insurance Commission recently paid bank depositors and verified information to start the liquidation process of Heritage Bank.


The NDIC did clarify, though, that people with less than N5 million will receive their return first.
