Mercy Aigbe drops hubby’s name, writes open letter

Actress Mercy Aigbe has dropped the name of her estranged husband, Lanre Gentry, from her social media account.
The actress edited Gentry’s name from her Instagram handle from @mercyaigbegentry to @realmercyaigbe.
She also wrote an open letter to Gentry, seeking to know the reason he wanted her dead and also accused him of being on the run.
Aigbe said both herself and Gentry were to appear in court together on Monday but he was nowhere to be found.
She also posted 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.
“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!
“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.”
The Edo State born actress said she has been suffering from battering in the hands of her husband for some time, but things got to its limit after the recent “big fight”.
