Actress Mercy Aigbe’s husband knows fate today

An Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court will today decide whether or not to stop a Lagos hotelier and businessman, Olanrewaju Gentry, from coming close to his wife and Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe.
He will appear before Chief Magistrate Mrs. F.O. Davies-Abegunde “to show cause why the restraining order should not be made permanent by the court.”
The applicant, Aigbe, will tender before the court, through her counsel, Adeola Falade, a medical report of the alleged violence by her husband.
In her ruling at the last sitting, Davies-Abegunde restrained Gentry “from going anywhere within one mile radius of the applicant and the two children in her custody.”
The decision was based on a 25-paragraph affidavit by the Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team (DSVRT), photographic evidence of the domestic violence and scanned report from a medical centre before the court.
“The respondent, Mr. Olanrewaju Gentry, of 14, Oregun Street, off Epe Close, Oregun, Ikeja is restrained from committing any further act of domestic violence against the applicant with immediate effect,” Abegunde-Davies said.
A social worker with DSVRT, Adeola Falade, on April 28 approached the court, on behalf of Mercy Aigbe, to ask for a restraining order against Gentry over alleged violence against his wife.
Falade alleged that Gentry went to his wife’s tailor’s place “to attack and beat her up.”
Falade tendered five photographs and copies of the medical scanned report of the applicant.
She applied for the restraining order in line with sections 5(1), 1(3) and section 7(1) of the Protection Against Domestic Violence and Connected Purposes Law 2007.
