One of the Facebook users accused of defamation against gospel artist Nathaniel Bassey and fellow singer Mercy Chinwo, Kingsley Ibe, has issued an apology for his actions.

Last week, Bassey filed a petition against Ibe and three others, alleging that they spread false information claiming Bassey was the father of Chinwo’s child, which caused a stir online.

In response, Ibe has publicly apologized to both Bassey and Chinwo, expressing regret for his “reckless” statements. He emphasized that his apology was sincere and not made under duress.
