“LIB learnt that domestic violence was a huge factor in the crash and a lady named Opemititi aka ‘Queen Stunner’ has also been mentioned as the lady having an affair with Mercy Aigbe’s hubby.”

In addition to the suit, Opemititi’s lawyers also gave a seven-day ultimatum ordering both Mercy and Linda to issue retractions and public apologies in the media, including their personal social media platforms.

As at the time of filing in this report, both Mercy and Linda were yet to comment on the development.
