The actress however said the case is now beyond her, stating in an interview with Punch that the case is now between the Office of Public Defenders, Lagos State Ministry of Women Affairs and her husband.

‘I cannot be washing my dirty linen in public and that is why I do not want to go into details of my marriage,’ she said.

‘It is not in my place to send him to jail. I only reported to the appropriate authorities and I just need him to show remorse for what he has done to me.

‘He does not know the gravity of what he has done to me, the pains that I feel right now and the trauma I have gone through.’

Aigbe lamented the pains caused from the beating she received, saying:

‘I am still in pains and I am bleeding internally because I am still coughing out blood. Instead of him to be remorseful, he was busy going online to say all sorts of things about me and concocting lies.’

‘He has been fabricating stories to taint my image because he knows I am the one with a reputation at stake. I intentionally did not say anything even though I have proof of everything I have to say.

‘Instead of my husband to show some sense of responsibility and own up to what he did, he was busy dragging my name in the mud.’
