Lanre Gentry, the estranged husband of Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe, will appear in court today. He will be answering to a charge of physical assault brought against him by the Lagos State Department of Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team, DSVRT.
He allegedly battered his wife, Mercy Aigbe Gentry.
Mrs Akande handed over the case to the state Ministry of Justice. The Commissioner said:
“I must commend Mercy’s courage, because what she did is what other women who are victims of domestic violence out there need to do. They don’t need to hide it, except they want to die.”
On her part, Coordinator of DSVRT, Mrs. Titilola Vivour-Adeniyi, said the a restraining order obtained against Gentry prevents him from getting close to his wife until further notice, assuring that government would pursue the case to a logical conclusion.
Mercy Aigbe’s seven-year-old marriage is just about to crash but we pray it does not! Too many celebrity marriages crashing these days.
