Yesterday, Mercy Aigbe shared a video of her battered face… and today, she has revealed that her estranged husband, Lanre gentry is begging her to take it down.
Lanre Gentry supposedly sent the message below asking her to remove the domestic violence posts from her Instagram page promising not to beat her again.
The actress shared their conversation minutes ago writing,
“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
