Tochukwu Okechukwu Tochi and Eric Akhigbe were the latest set of housemates to be evicted from the ongoing Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) reality TV show on Sunday night.


This had come a week after Ka3na and Lilo became the first set of housemates to be asked to leave the show after they pulled the lowest votes.

How did it happen?

Eric and Tochi were among the 16 housemates put for possible eviction for the week with Ozo, the head of house (HoS), and Dorathy, his deputy, excluded from eviction in line with the newly introduced arrangement for this year’s edition by Biggie, the instructive voice behind the show’s screen.


Last night, the two were announced alongside Trikytee and Kaisha as the four housemates with the lowest votes during the course of the week’s voting by fans and then put up for possible eviction.

Kaisha got 2.41% votes, Trikytee had 2.29% votes, Tochi had 2.11% votes, while Eric, who was also nominated for eviction the previous week, had the least votes with 1.91%.

The remaining 14 housemates were then invited into the diary room to nominate two of the bottom 4 for eviction.


Their votes were as follow:

  • Dorathy: Tochi, and Eric
  • Praise: Tochi and Eric
  • Kiddwaya: Kaisha and Eric
  • Nengi: Kaisha and Eric
  • Lucy: Kaisha and Tochi
  • Prince: Kaisha and Tochi
  • Tolanibaj: Eric and Tochi
  • Brighto: Trikytee and Eric
  • Erica: Tochi and Kaisha
  • Wathoni: Tochi and Eric
  • Laycon: Eric and Trikytee
  • Vee: Eric and Kaisha
  • Ozo: Kaisha and Tochi

At the end of the exercise, 8 people voted Tochi, 9 picked Eric, 7 went for Kaisha while 2 voted Trikytee for possible eviction.

Neo’s vote, was, however, not included.


Tochi and Eric were consequently asked to leave the ‘Lockdown’ house after securing the highest mentions from fellow housemates for eviction.

With the development, the remaining 16 housemates will continue the battle for the N85 million grand prize up for grabs as the show heats up.
