The incident began when fellow housemate Ike Onyema took an unconventional approach to provoke Ilebaye, aiming to elicit a reaction from her that could potentially lead to her disqualification from the show.
Ike scattered Ilebaye’s personal items, including her clothes, on different floors of their shared living space.
However, Ilebaye chose to rise above the provocation and maintained her composure, opting not to engage with the situation.
Coming to Ilebaye’s rescue, Mercy Eke, another housemate who has earned a reputation for her strong and assertive personality, took the initiative to gather and store Ilebaye’s scattered belongings safely.
This display of camaraderie among the housemates was appreciated by viewers, who recognized Mercy’s support for her fellow contestant.
The standout moment of the incident, however, came when Neo, known for his calm demeanor and thoughtfulness, took it upon himself to wash Ilebaye’s pants, which were among the scattered items.
After thoroughly cleaning the clothing, Neo was captured on video as he handed Ilebaye her freshly cleaned and dried pants.
