Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe, has finally broken the silence on the domestic violence issue she has been having with her husband, Lanre Gentry.
The actress who has been quiet on the matter since it became public made a statement on Friday morning, in which she bared the serial battering she had endured from her husband.
In an attempt to give her claims the much needed currency, Aigbe published shocking photographs of her last experience, claiming that her husband, Lanre Gentry, has been spreading falsehood about her, alleging infidelity and adultery, among other allegations.
On her Instagram post today, Aigbe, who apart from remaining silent, had reported the matter to the Lagos State Women’s Affairs Ministry, said her silence is no more golden.
Her post was directly addressed to her estranged husband, who she still addressed as “Dear Lanre…”
Dear Lanre Gentry, It breaks my heart that I have to do this but as it is you have left me with no choice……I had sleepless night because I just couldn’t comprehend why someone i loved , someone with whom I have a child will be hell bent on destroying me, I just cannot comprehend it……..
I read with tears in my eyes all the LIES you fabricated against me, LIES you feel will justify your inhumane act, LIES you feel will gain you public sympathy and LIES calculated to bring my person to public opprobrium……..
You claim ….
(1) I am Mentally Unstable (2) That you have caught me with different men
(3) That I do not take care of my parents (4) That a man rented an apartment for me……….
