Mercy Aigbe: Fashion designer claims having sex with the actress countless times, estranged husband reportedly remanded in prison

The story of Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe and her husband, Lanre Gentry, is not leaving the news stands as soon as expected.

Mercy and her husband have been having a war of words on social media since she released photos of her battered face and concerned authorities have waded into the matter.

While Nigerians have been waiting for what would happen next, an Abuja-based fashion designer, @Bostonroland on Instagram has alleged that he slept with the actress in 2014.

According to him, he was unaware that she was a celebrity and was married.

He alleged that Aigbe told him she was a single mom and they had sex a couple of times.
The fashion designer also claimed that they travelled to South Africa together.

He added that he has proof and will post them if the actress continues to act as a ‘victim of domestic violence’.

Meanwhile, Lanre Gentry has been remanded in Ikoyi prison custody after failing to meet his bail conditions.

Lanre was today arraigned before an Ogba Magistrate court on a three count charge offence bordering on breach of public peace, assault and causing grievous bodily harm on his wife.

Police prosecutor, Inspector N. Peter told the court that Mr. Gentry constantly beat up Mercy and in the last assault, hit her on the nose, which resulted to blood gushing out.

The police prosecutor said the offence committed by Gentry was contrary to and punishable under sections 157 (f), 168 (a) and 171 of the Criminal Law No II, Vol. 44 Laws of Lagos State of Nigeria 2011.

Lanre is said to have entered a not guilty plea to the three count charge offence.

The presiding magistrate, Mrs O. Aje-Afunwa granted him bail in the sum of N500,000 with two sureties in the like sum. According to Aje-Afunwa, both sureties must show proof of tax payment and own a verifiable house in Lagos with title documents.

Since he couldn't meet up with his bail conditions before the Magistrate closed for the day, he was sent to the Ikoyi prison until he fulfills his bail condition.
