Mercy Aigbe’s husband, Lanre Gentry, is finally out of jail.
The actress’ husband who was released after fulfilling his bail condition has accused the Nigerian government of neglecting those in prison and focusing on other things.
He took to Instagram on May 17, 2017,
“Like I have said earlier in have something to tell the world due to my fresh experience at the medium prison,(Kiri Kiri papa)but firstly I’ll like to glorify the Almighty God for his grace upon my life…..
At this moment I would say @realmercyaigbe’s effort sending me to jail was another privilege to see, say about all which is going on over there.I think this place should be a rehabilitation centre and not a dumping ground,7days and 7night at d medium prison look like have spent a whole year in there..y?
Just because our government has a lot to do over there and nothing has been done over there…over 3600 prisoners, where we are meant to have just 1500prisoners.prisoners are now more or less like beggars.
I have been there not that am being told people die every blessed day..am here to tell the world to please let’s fight this out with our government because I see no reason why tax are being collected and nothing has been produced and provided through all this payment, is it that they’ve forgotten these people are still Nigerian citizens?
If I may ask .government shouldn’t leave what they ought to do and start involving themselves over (domestic violence)…I won’t say more than this tonight..but more to come every night.I mean no harm to no one but to whom it may concern.
Government shouldn’t leave its primary responsibilities and start getting involved in cases of domestic violence.”
The Hotelier was remanded in Kirikiri prisons on Tuesday, May 9, after he was arrested for allegedly assaulting his Nollywood actress wife.
Gentry was arraigned at an Ogba Magistrate Court 1 sitting at Ogba, Ikeja, on three count charges under the State Criminal law 2011.
He was reportedly granted bail in the sum of N500, 000 as well as the provision of tax verification and two sureties, one of whom must own property in Lagos State, but was remanded in jail for failure to perfect his bail conditions before the end of the day.
According to earlier reports, Aigbe reported the alleged attack to the Lagos State Government through the Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team.
Gentry was subsequently slammed with a restraining order that keeps him no less than one mile of Mercy Aigbe’s location at all times.
The couple was married for seven years and share a son together.
