Husband of Nollywood actress Mercy Aigbe, Lanre Gentry has been remanded in prison for beating her up.
This development comes after there were reports that the actress had a case to answer from the Lagos state government for domestic abuse.
It is noteworthy to recall that photos of the actress covered in blood surfaced online after which she was reported to have conducted a CT scan which revealed she suffered a fractured skull from the alleged assault from her husband.
Although Lanre Gentry has denied the domestic violence claims as he said via his social media account: “I love my wife so much. Well, I know my wife did not have hand in this because I have never beaten my wife and I will never beat her because I love her so much,” the Lagos State government has reportedly begun investigation into the matter.
Telegraph also reported that the Edo State-born actress, Mercy Aigbe had dragged her husband, Lanre Gentry, to the Lagos Ministry of Women Affairs for investigation and prosecution of the alleged domestic violence incidence.
An official who wished to remain anonymous had confirmed the case was with the ministry.
He is to remain in prison until he meets the bail demands of 500K and two sureties who reside in Lagos and have landed properties.
Case adjourned to July 12th 2017.
