This comes in the wake of the Lagos State Government declaration not to back down from the case between the actress and her husband.

The Lagos State Government is demanding that the Nigerian Police forward the duplicate of the case file on the alleged assault on Mercy Aigbe by her husband, Lanre Gentry.
This comes in the wake of the Lagos State Government declaration not to back down from the case between the actress and her husband.

The State Government in a letter written through the Directorate of Public Prosecutions, DPP, May 22, 2017, indicated its interest in prosecuting the alleged case of assault.

It was learned that aside from writing to the Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of the State Criminal Investigative Department, SCID, Panti, Yaba, Lagos Mainland Local Government, DPP also copied other relevant agencies, to alert them of its plan.

The State Government argued that the assault contravenes sections 171, 243 and 244 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.

The Coordinator of the State Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team, DSVRT, Mrs. Titilola Vivour- Adeniyi, explained that if anyone is beaten or suffered abused, the State is also being abused, noting, we must begin to renew our mindsets and treat Domestic Violence for what it is; a crime against the State.

Gentry has since been arrested, arraigned and remanded in jail for the charge of domestic violence.
One week after his arrest, he was released following the perfection of his bail conditions.
