“Why will a man who claims to love you beat you to the extent of breaking your skull?” – Mercy Aigbe to Estranged Husband | Removes ‘Gentry’ from her Social Media



This is so heartbreaking!

Nollywood actress Mercy Aigbe has again reached out to her estranged husband Lanre Gentry on social media with an open letter. According to her, her post was brought on by the fact that they were supposed to appear in court together this morning but he didn’t show up because he’s “on admission”.

She says she is a victim and she’s choosing to speak out.

Posting a photo of herself in the hospital undergoing a brain scan, she wrote:

Why will a man who claims to love you, beat you to the extent of breaking your skull… what was my crime? @asiwajulanregentry you have to tell the world what my crime was… Now you are on the run… trying to connive with the police so I won’t get justice!!!!!!!…… Lanre you can run but you can’t hide, you can tell all the LIES in this world but trust me at the end of it all the TRUTH will prevail and I will get Justice……. People keep saying I shouldn’t talk and that I should think of our child………. but you keep threatening to kill me, why I don’t know!!!!!!!!!!!….. Now that you are conniving with the police I don’t feel safe and I have to cry out…We were supposed to be in court this morning and you lied that you are on Admission and can’t be in court!
@asiwajulanregentry you on admission? God you can never stop LYING……..then again I ask you why are you afraid to come to court?

The actress has also changed her Instagram handle from @mercyaigbegentry to @realmercyaigbe and has removed her husband’s surname “Gentry” from all social media accounts.

    I’m so done with these women who pretend, fake, lie, cover up their disastrous marriage/relationships. Then post everything on the same social media they’ve used to lie to the public . But what us to feel sorry for them now.
    Why can’t they just settle it off social media, and deal with their issues. The person who beats is not the only problem but the one who stays and takes it has serious issues. So, mercy get off social media and go work on yourself.
    Your husband belongs to jail

      Maybe she won’t have to get on social media if there was any type of justice given to women in abusive situations in Nigeria. Who is she supposed to cry to? the useless police? the corrupt justice system? For some people, social media is their way of seeking help. It may not be your way, but it’s her way.

      Do you know the type of courage it takes to come on social media and admit your life is not as glamorous as portrayed? Let’s be honest, all of us try to show our best self on social media in one way or the other, but there are times when you must confront the truth and may be this is her way.

      Please Mercy carry on. Speak out and loud

    keep asking us Yeye question.
    So he didnt come to court and you think social media is the right avenue to send a “text message” (because thats what it should have been)
    I’m tired of nigerian women. Use your sense.
    If youre going to fight to win You have to be strategic.
    Calling him out only puts you in a more complicated light. Calling yourself the victim wont help you. Let your pictures/actions speak. Fight him with everything you’ve got (you can even play dirty) but do it off social media.
    You can win if only you will leave social media alone and fight.

    Why will a woman who claims to love her husband be sleeping with other men for money?
    Madam Mercy now that you are free to face your prostitution heads on, free the guy from all this drama. Just move on jejely, I really wished he hadn’t touched you. Though you deserve it with that your sharp mouth

After he beat you and dragged you home at an event in 2013 when you disappeared and were found in your nightie, yet next day you and same Lanre gentry come out in a video, smiling, hugging and kissing, saying nothing of such happened. It was imagination things. Anyways God loves you that’s why you are alive to tell the story

      May 8, 2017 at 4:20 pm

      So she should die because she tried to cover it up in the past abi? Now that she wants to liberate herself, you have to bring up 2013 as a way to say ‘serves you right abi’.

      She was busy knocking around with bigger boys while the hubby was observing from a distance…do you a man will just wake one and start beating the wife for no reason? I doubt!!!

      @ Jumbo, you want to justify why a man should beat his wife abi? Oya tell us.

    Please cry out o!!! Shout it!!!! If he is innocent, he will defend himself.

    As for all of you abusing her for speaking up now when she covered up for him before, shebi you are women? When you find yourself in her situation, you would remember your own words. You all forgot that he was the one who started with that malicious interview.

    You have no idea what victims of domestic violence face and even how the Nigerian police cover up or dismiss cases of domestic violence.

    My aunt was a victim. A family friend’s mother was a victim. They are late now. Did not even enjoy their children. Women who are still victims, learn from Mercy. RUN AWAY SCREAMING!!! Perhaps your screaming would save another woman from being his victim.

    But will women ever learn?

    Why do we like to tell the oppressed to keep quiet?!! She has been collecting Koboko in silence, the man has used her silence to continue with the act and now that she has had enough and is seeking justice, some people are asking her to keep quiet. If she had died now, it is still the same people that will say why did she not talk since so she would have received help. The guy is trying to buy over the police and is missing in action and you still want her to keep quiet! Why must we always suppress the victim! Obviously her silence in the past has not helped her, that it why she is now treating a broken skull. Gosh!!

      My dear, you’re very right!! Until people have gone through abuse, they’ll never understand it. Do you people know how many people are going through abuse and are ashamed to speak out? People want to know they aren’t the only ones going through it. Please Mercy, scream it if you have to!! Someone will definitely be motivated to speak about their own abuse

    Does social media validate the claim of domestic violence does it pass a court ruling in favour of mercy? How does it help your case of domestic violence. I’m just trying to understand. Social media is an uncensored platform when she says her own the man will say his own. Nobody wins just noise. I just wish people could have the wisdom to do things the RIGHT WAY. People got no dignity acting like they ain’t got no mama or papa. I shame for this fake instafame digital era. Mtchewwwwwww. Meanwhile there are real people suffering the effects of domestic violence , this social media nonsense does not help them.

      On the contrary, I think you’ll find that it creates awareness, and might help people to be able to make informed decisions. Try to be sensitive to what others are going through, even if you feel it does not affect you directly. Sometimes we can learn from experiences of others if they choose to share them. We may not know the true situation of things and are in no position to judge anyone. part of the message is that domestic violence is alive and well, and it is not ok regardless of the gender.

    • Passingby

      May 8, 2017 at 6:47 pm

      @ogologo My question is how does social media validate her claim???. It just escalates shit slinging tactics and nobody is any wiser on what really happened. At most it’s cheap , gossip entertainment. In a short while the ex will come up with his own claims. In the court of uncensored public opinion the more atrocious the claims the more valueless likes and support you get. And remember the court of public opinion is a fickled minded judge it changes direction which ever way the wind blows. You want to educate people on domestic violence go to court bring your evidence win you case with dignity, then come and share your experiences – what went wrong, how you would do things differently next time., how to get justice. We need to be leading the way for young ones teaching them how to do things right not endorsing the use of social media to crap sling like culture less teenagers. My take , rant over.

She has chosen to bring this to social media , it’s her choice to make not yours! So pls shut up!

    See the truth is when hubby has invested heavily on you, forget that peanuts money they pay them for movie roles, you now decide to frolic around with other men, I mean what kind of woman you be sef?….check the high flying ones among them, they all do runs to live that jet set life you all see on instagram. unfortunately, mercy went for that kind of life too and now she is gradually exposing her teenage daughter to it….
    I know the oloshi minded ones will come here and ask ”how much did he even spend on her sef”?

    Hmnnnnnn, why are some humans so insensitive.
    1. When Mercy was quite and covering up all the violence from her ex husband- Insults poured in .
    2. Now she is opening up and – Insults are pouring in .
    Some are even still mentioning how much the ex hubby spent on her?.
    What about her life? ?
    We are talking about a broken skull , Lawd !
    That can even cause damage or Brain Injury (God Forbid) .
    Mercy pls shout it out as loud as you can, let this be a Resounding message to the violent and abusive men/women out there.
    And also to victims of DV, It is no longer a stigma or a shameful to be a victim of DV.

    Why are you Nigerian women so wicked at heart?.. a fellow woman is lying in a picture with a cracked skull and all you can do is further condemn her? May God forgive each and everyone of you that has had something negative to say about matter what her sins are. No one God created deserves to be going through this. I am so upset with this generation of callous human beings, both men and women alike!

    You ladies post deceptive stories of love on social media when nobody send you. Then you use the same mouth to proclaim domestic violence. Every time trying to sway and manipulate public opinion to favour you. So when do we no when you are lying and when you are saying the truth. It’s like a game. Totally uncalled for. Go and sort yourselves out Joor.

    People need to learn to control this impulse to look for validation by total strangers. Mercy pele about the beating my advise is go and settle your matter in court like grown ups do. Stop running to social media each time it suites you to peddle stories people get tired of your different Tory same goes to tonto.

      Very beautiful response u gave here! What if the media is the only little hope for them to voice out their pains?? Are the Judiciary and Police always fair in their judgements??.. I think we are all getting this twisted. If differences can not be settled between the two separately, then the best way is to cry out in the open for help. Some advice can be of help to them somehow. Thank you.

    Yoruba will say “eni to kan lo mo” let her deal with it her way o eyin omo adamo. If you’re so bothered say a word of prayer for her. She’s going through a lot already. Some comments here self, Oga o. Just pray you never find yourself in an abusive relationship. Nobody is perfect. If speaking out makes her feel better, allow her without being judgemental . If you’re bored ignore any post about her. Abi. You think she doesn’t have friends advising her day and night? At the end of it all na she know where shoe dey pain am, she’ll do what makes her feel better. Mercy, i pray God would give you the wisdom to deal with this. Stay strong.

    Celebrities give you this idea that all is rosy but what they are showing you is a lie. Mercy u knew gentry was no good but stayed. Its always like that maybe after every issue gentry will get you that thing or car you have been dreaming about. Men always know how to use material things to weaken women. Years ago i had a friend who was in such a relationship. The guy would beat her break her head or her hand or even stab her and burn her clothes she will cry and swear she will never go back and we would advice her as good friends after a while the guy will come back start begging and claiming the devil pushed him to do it and i will tell my friend to tell him no tell him No!!! She will keep quiet and wont say a thing its from other people i will hear they back again when i see her and ask why she went back she will say the guy bought her everything he burnt and more a better phone increased her allowance and money is flowing from him to her she will forget he broke her head or stabbed her. Women in abusive relationships know they are abused but they stay put and live a lie until they find themselves.

    if you like hate social media, if u like love it, but common people this is the 21st century, the world has evolved, news travel faster through social media, u say she shldnt air it out on social media, because y??????? her son will see it and be ashamed, but which is worst? to hide it, and protect the beast’s image while tomorrow another innocent girl falls victim. common people, if social media disgust u so much then stop using mobile phones, stick to letter writing. what is wrong in trying to protect the man u love, every woman has done it, but it will get to a point u just have to draw the line. mercy i stand by you, use what ever platform to call him out,

    Hmmm…. Isn’t women the weaker cells? Why should a strong and heavy man as Mr. Gentry kept battering his wives as if he was caused with it ? À man like him is to be a widower for life. Please tell me ‘HOW MANY WOMAN WILL MR. GENTRY KEPT BATTERING AND ASSAULTING THEM.. Is it only in Nigeria that women love marrying divorcée? This man is not worthy of staying with a woman..Mercy, thank God for saving your life from this man’s trap. #nodomesticvolenceagainstwomen#onelove#..
