It certainly is not the best of times for Mercy Aigbe’s estranged husband, Lanre Gentry as he is still cooling his feet at the Kirikiri prisons- yet to be released on bail, one week after he was taken in by the authorities at the behest of his wife.
Gentry had been earlier remanded for a two count charge of assault and battery and was dragged to the police by his wife, Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe.
He failed to meet a condition of N500,000 and was consequently remanded in prison.
But new reports have it that Gentry who was supposed to be granted bail on Monday, was being held back because judges who were in charge of the case had an urgent magistrate meeting at Apapa, Lagos State.
An insider also revealed to NET that if all things are handled accordingly, Gentry will be released today, after which a proper court hearing will start next week.
This is coming two days after the Nollywood actress released a tell-all video explaining to the world how she had survived a seven-year old marriage which was fraught with domestic violence, philandering and insecurity.
