Battered and bruised by her husband, Lanre Gentry, Mercy Aigbe is not keeping quiet.
She is responding with so much vigour.
The Nollywood star and entrepreneur has broken the societal norm that a woman should just accept and move on even though her husband is closing in on killing her.
Aigbe, whose bloodied face appeared online recently has debunked accusations that she cheated on her husband. She asked him to provide proof.
She wrote on Instagram:
“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 nights 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…
LIES all LIES…
Dear hubby, I challenge you to back your claims with PROOF!!!!!!!!!
Hmmmm, Lanre, you forget quickly! You forget how I have laboured and stood by you all these years, even though all what I was getting from you was constant beating, harassment, threat to my life and threat to destroying my image if I dare leave you… You must PROVE all your allegations otherwise God knows I am going to add another lawsuit to the one on ground!
Although my Team has been pleading with me to stay silent all these while, but I have come to realise that you want to ride on my keeping mum… #saynotodomesticviolence#
Really sad case here. We wish the Nollywood star all the best.
