Following reports from a few days ago about actress Mercy Aigbe being allegedly battered by her husband – Lanre Gentry, reports now circulating say that the Lagos State Ministry of Women Affairs which strongly kicks against domestic violence, might investigate Mr. Gentry.
On Friday images emerged via LIB showing a bloodied and bruised Mercy Aigbe. Reports followed showing results from a CT Scan performed on the actress which showed she had suffered a fractured skull at the hands of alleged abuse from her husband.
A top official within the ministry has reportedly confirmed the ministry’s investigation saying,
Truly, 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.
Meanwhile Gentry has taken to social media to claim that the pictures of his battered wife are from a movie set and being used for propaganda against him.
So far Aigbe has kept mum about the domestic violence accusations levied against her husband.
