Mercy flooded her Instagram page with boss chick photos of herself, rocking a black outfit as she described the birthday as the last chapter of her 20s.

She wrote: “Last of my 20s, Happy birthday to me!!!!!”.

However, Mercy Eke got exposed online after sharing details of her permanent voter’s card on the microblogging platform, Twitter.

Just like many other Nigerian showing their PVCs after collection, Mercy did likewise but decided to cover her date of birth and occupation leaving her voter’s identification number (VIN).

Some netizens berated her for not covering the VIN as it will give people access to get her full details online.

A Twitter follower used the VIN to check the details of the reality TV star and it shows that Mercy is 32 and not 29 as claimed.
