The five defendants who are to appear before the court on the April 23, 2024 are Okoronkwo Ejike, Kingsley Ibeh, DJ Spoiltkid, Terrence Ekot, and Samuel Agozie.

According to Solomon Buchi, a Christian influencer, he stated that he spoke to Pastor Blessed Uzochikwa, Mercy’s husband. He revealed after the conversation with the pastor that he filed a direct criminal complaint through his attorneys, led by Pelumi Olajengbesi, Esq., accusing the five of criminal defamation.

Mercy Chinwo’s husband stated that the act carried out was an intentional dissemination of harmful false information, cyberbullying, and cyberstalking.
