Few days after her battering by her husband hit the headlines, for beautiful Mercy Aigbe Gentry, life goes on.
To this end, the stunning looking Nollywood actress has joined the campaign against domestic violence and wife battery.
Just as workers marched to celebrate the Special Day, the diva announces she is opening her shop for business and even offers patrons a special discount.
“Over to you Jehovah!!!! My dress of course from @mag_divas
Off to the shop!……. Expecting you guys, don’t forget special discount on today’s purchases”.
Twice, since her husband Lanre Gentry’s attack, the Nollywood actress has turned her Instagram Page, with 2.1million followers, into a platform to campaign against the abuse.
The latest was a combo photograph published today. In one part, an abusive husband, shuts the mouth of his petrified wife, with his hand on which is written several messages, such as ‘I Love you, ‘I didn’t mean it’, ‘I’m Sorry”, etc. In the second, the beastly husband, is shown showing some remorse, for his action.
The combo photograph may well be illustrative of Aigbe’s situation.
Though her husband, friends and relatives have been trying to resolve the domestic conflict, the actress appears unsatisfied as she has reported the assault to the Lagos State Ministry of Women Affairs for justice.
The New Telegraph on Sunday reported that she had taken the matter to the Lagos State Government for investigation.
A top official revealed that the ministry had received the petition and that it is treating it with urgency, due to the mandate given to the ministry by Governor Akinwunmi Ambode to crack down on domestic violence especially against women.
“I am commenting on this based on your manner of approach, so please I’d like my privacy to be respected. Truly, the case is with us here.
”We’re still very much on top of the matter and we’ll get it to its logical conclusion,” he said.
