Johnson took to her Instagram page to announce the sad news.
“It deeply saddens me to say that my beloved mother is gone.
“This is a trying time for my family and we would appreciate your prayers, even as we plead for our privacy at this time. Thank you,” the actress wrote.
Mercy Johnson, who is also Kogi State Senior Special Assistant on Entertainment, Arts and Culture, earlier this month insisted she would never return her wedding ring to her husband, as everything was fine with them.
The talented actress, earlier this year, was rumoured to have experienced some problems in her marriage after she deleted all her pictures, including that of her husband, from her Instagram page.
