“My estranged husband must sign an undertaking that nothing will happen to me” – Mercy Aigbe
Nollywood Actor Mercy Aigbe has said that she wants her estranged husband, Lanre Gentry to sign an undertaking that he will not come near her, adding that he had sent thugs to her house.
Lanre, who is currently in Kirikiri Prisons was accused of physically abusing the actress.
Mercy reported the case to the police when she could no longer keep quiet. “The case is no longer between my husband and I. It is now between the Office of the Public Defender, Lagos State Ministry of Women Affairs and my husband. The officer is the one handling the case.
I can’t be washing my dirty linen in public n that’s y I don’t want 2 go into details of my marriage. It is not in my place to send him to jail. I only reported to the appropriate authorities and I just need him to show remorse for what he has done to me. He does not know the gravity of what he has done to me, the pains that I feel right now and the trauma I have gone through.
I am still in pains and I am bleeding internally because I am still coughing out blood. Instead of him to be remorseful, he was busy going online to say all sorts of things about me and concocting lies. He has been fabricating stories to taint my image because he knows I am the one with a reputation at stake. I intentionally did not say anything even though I have proof of everything I have to say. Instead of my husband to show some sense of responsibility n own up to what he did, he was busy dragging my name in the mud,” Mercy said.
Mercy made it clear that she is fighting for her life adding that she wants him to sign an undertaking that he’d not come close to her.
“I am fighting 4 my life because if I die there would be no image to protect. I just want him to sign an undertaking that nothing would happen to me because a man who is capable of sending thugs to the house is capable of anything. Someone who can set me up and lie that I have mental illness can do anything. He should sign the undertaking and we should go our different ways.
Else, the law would take its full course”.
