Mercy Aigbe opens up in an exclusive video interview with Broadway TV regarding her husband Lanre Gentry’s sustained and vicious physical attacks on her person four weeks ago. Gentry has been arrested and is being held at Kirikiri prison. The incident happened four weeks ago but Aigbe continues to suffer health repercussions including bleeding from the nose.
I find it incredible that he beat her as mercilessly as he did in front of others and no one stepped in to help her until she had sustained such severe injuries?
“He beats me consistently I stayed because I loved him and because everytime he beats me, he begs and gets family and friends to beg me. He promised regularly to change but he never did. When my husband gets angry, he gets physical, not only to me but to anyone. He has done that with my house help who reported him to the Police years ago. I stayed because of my children and because a lot of people look up to me. I was a role model of some sort and I really wanted to keep it together. I just wanted a home.”
