Indications have emerged that Lanre Gentry, husband of popular Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe may be prosecuted for wife battery as Lagos State government has begun investigation into the matter. .
Mercy, it was gathered, has dragged her hotelier husband, Gentry, to the Lagos Ministry of Women Affairs for investigation and prosecution over alleged battery and assault.
A top official with ministry revealed that the case has been brought to the attention of the body; stressing it is a matter of urgency due to the mandate given to the ministry by Governor Akinwunmi Ambode to crack down on domestic violence especially against women. .
“Truely, the case is with us here. It was reported here by the victim herself, and because of the governor’s zero tolerance for domestic violence, we are as a matter of urgency investigating the whole drama. .
It is a good thing that it has also been brought to the public eye. We’re still very much on top of the matter and we’ll get it to its logical conclusion,”
