On Friday, Mercy had flared up in a social media outburst where she alleged that a teacher of Chrisland School, Victoria Garden City, Lagos bullied Purity, her 8-year-old daughter.

But Chidera had immediately accused the actress of assaulting the teacher and bringing her thugs afterward to cause more harm.

In a follow-up live video, Mercy filmed the headteacher to deny the accusations that she unleashed thugs on the staff.

In a now-viral video, the lady said her initial post was because she was misinformed. She also revealed that she had no first-hand details of what transpired.

“The events of the past few hours have been very traumatizing for me and I just came on here to apologise to Mercy Johnson Okojie. I was misinformed and I didn’t have first-hand information of everything,” she said.

“I believe what I saw over what may have transpired before I got there. So, I based my judgment on that. I’m very sorry for whatever issues I may have caused her family and whatever trauma I may have caused them through at the end of today, I really hope she finds it in her heart to forgive me.”

The lady also claimed that she had been getting death threats since she made the post while pleading with fans of the actress to forgive her.

“I’ve been receiving several death threats in the past hours and it’s disturbing to me, so I came here to apologise to everyone,” she added.

“I have great love for Mercy and I will never wish her or her children bad. Next time, I would be more informed before making comments.”
