Day 56 – 17 Sept: Breaking News - Alex and Pere get a strike each!– BBNaija

Once again, Biggie aligns the All Stars with a strike.

Alex and Pere have both been issued a strike each for infringing on Biggie's house rules.

Watch Alex and Pere receive a strike

The incident
Alex and Pere had an altercation over bed spaces after the Saturday night rave. Pere was found guilty of infringing the house rule on violence when he physically removed the mattress from under Alex's bed. This reckless act had the potential to cause her serious injury. As a result, Pere was issued a strike, marking his second strike in the house.

But the drama didn't end there. Alex, too, faced consequences for her behaviour. She was found guilty of provocation through her actions in forcefully pulling the duvet off Pere. This aggressive behaviour was deemed unnecessary, and Alex was also issued a strike as a result.

The rules were clear from the beginning: housemates had the freedom to determine their own bed spaces, with the exception of the dedicated space for the Head of House. However, it seemed that not everyone was on the same page when it came to respecting these boundaries. Perhaps the most concerning issue addressed by Big Brother was the use of strong, threatening language among the housemates. Threats of violence and the use of harsh, unkind words were deemed unacceptable and a clear violation of the house rules. Big Brother warned that if Alex survived the upcoming eviction, she would face further punishment for her behaviour.

The list of housemates who have received strikes keeps building up. So far, Adekunle, Doyin, Pere, and Venita have been issued strikes for various reasons: Adekunle (one strike), Alex (one strike), Doyin (one strike), Ilebaye (two strikes), Evictee Ike (one strike), Mercy Eke (one strike), Pere (two strikes), Soma (one strike), and Venita (one strike)

As tensions continue to simmer in the BBNaija All Stars house, it remains to be seen how these conflicts will shape the dynamics among the housemates and impact the course of the game. One thing is for sure – with each passing day, the stakes are getting higher, and the drama is far from over.
