Domestic Violence: I Have Seen Mercy Aigbe Fainted On Set Out Of Exhaustion—Actress

Despite all that had been said or written by Nollywood actress Mercy Aigbe and husband, Lanre Gentry about each other and on their failed marriage, there seems to be no move from Mercy to make up with her estranged husband.
However, another actress, Lara Olubo, who is a close friend of Mercy has revealed how Lanre had beaten Mercy and anytime she tried to intervene, he would beat her as well.
According to Lara, Mercy had sacrificed much for the marriage and she had witnessed the actress fainting while on set due to exhaustion.

In an Instagram post, Lara wrote:

The four-year-old union that has produced a son was placed on the front burner of discussions on Friday April 28, when pictures of a battered Mercy’s face went viral on social media. The actress’ husband Lanre Gentry was said to have inflicted the injuries on her while the couple had a fight during the Easter holiday. Also in the media was a copy of a CT scan she carried out after the violence on her which indicated that she had a fracture in her skull.
She was reported to have been on admission at a hospital where she was treated as a result of the assault. mercy aigbe battered1
