The Big Brother Naija Lockdown Season 5 was emotionally filled on Sunday, September 6, when Erica, who was the Head of House until a few minutes after 7pm, was disqualified.
Nigerians who had been divided over the reasons she was disqualified took to social media to share their reactions to the news.
The reasons Erica was evicted were given as:
1. Peeping and wanting to talk to the production team
2. Denying Prince access to sleep in the Head of House lounge.
3. Pouring water on the Prince part of HoH bed.
4. Threatening a housemate.

One of the main supporters of Erica is BBAfrica star, Uti Nwachukwu, many waited to see how he will react to her eviction. He did not disappoint as he tweeted;
“Erica leaving the #Bbnaija house is actually a good thing for her. I don’t think she could have handled the roller coaster of emotions coming. This is good for her mental health and I know she would remorsefully learn from this and rise. I ask that we please be compassionate”
