On April 28, the news about how Nollywood actress Mercy Aigbe was beaten by her husband hit the internet and many could not help but sympathise with her.

Following her outburst about suffering from domestic violence via Linda Ikeji’s blog, her husband Olanrewaju Gentry was picked up by the police and locked up in Kirikiri maximum prison for a period of seven days because he was unable to meet his N500,000 bail conditions.

The Nollywood actress on the other hand moved out of her matrimonial home with her two children. On granting her first interview with Broadway TV, Mercy Aigbe revealed that her husband whom had earlier accused her of being a cheat was also guilty of the same offence.
