Mercy Aigbe’s Husband Still In Prison As Wife Celebrates ‘Victory’

Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe’s husband, 52-year-old Lanre Gentry, is still in prison.

The hotelier who was docked last week before a Magistrate Court 1 sitting at Ogba, Ikeja, on three count charges under the State Criminal law 2011, seems not able to meet the bail conditions of N500, 000; provision of tax verification and two sureties, one of whom must own property in Lagos State.
But before his appearance before the court another magistrate court barred Gentry from coming close to the actress and the two children in her custody.

Gentry, who was alleged to have physically assaulted his actress wife, Mercy, appeared before the court last Tuesday and pleaded not guilty to the charges leveled against him by the Lagos State Government.

Recall that the State Government waded into the alleged domestic violence after the actress reported her attack to the Lagos State Government through Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team (DSVRT).

The case was adjourned till July 12.

However, a top Government official disclosed that the actress husband was unable to meet the bail condition before the end of Friday leading to his remand in prison.

Meanwhile, Mercy must have become an advocate for the Lagos State Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team.

Sharing a banner on her IG handle, she writes:
“Thank you Mrs. Lola Akande (Honourable commissioner for women affairs Lagos state) thank you Governor @akinwunmiambode ….. (sic)
