Mercy Aigbe’s estranged husband, Lanre Gentry has publicly apologized to her and is now calling for peace.
He took to his Instagram to apologize adding that he wanted to bury the hatchet.
In case you missed it: the recent drama started yesterday after the actress published her domestic violence video, urging women to stay away from abusive relationships. Shortly after the post went up, her estranged husband accused her of lying and swore he never attacked her during their relationship.
Mercy Aigbe flipped.
The actress published a photo of her battered face and also a screenshot of her conversation with Gentry, where he crawled back to her, promising never to hurt her.
Why will a man who obviously beat his wife, try so much to deny what he did? My take is because he knows what he did is wrong and apparently he is ashamed and cannot own up to it…… Let us be very careful of what we do especially when we are Angry as we might not know the consequences of that action…….Violence like I keep saying does not and will not solve anything, let us learn to control our anger at all times….. Arguments are bound to happen between couples but under no circumstances should we let it result to violence! Nobody has a right to hit, his or her partner regardless…….. Battery and Assault is a CRIME! #saynodomesticviolence #saynotoassault Join us in the #1in3Africa campaign, a campaign against violence! We are walking the streets of lagos to show our displeasure at this menace that is eating deep into our system……. Join us tomorrow by 10am, Start off point is Falomo Bridge by Awolowo Road…… Conflicts should be settled amicably and not through violence, only weak men hit women.
