* Why husband was remanded in Ikoyi Prison

Not every storm cloud falls as rain hence the war of attrition violently wreaking the popular Yoruba actress, Mercy Aigbe and her husband, Lanre Gentry, may become much more than the couple and any arbiter can handle. Indications arose several weeks ago that all is not well with the couple when husband beat her and Mercy spat into the air and received it in measured cadence, accused her husband of being a deadbeat husband and a wife beater.

No sooner than she made her claim, her husband responded in kind claiming she was delusional and mentally unstable. Known for his sudden mood swings, the wife has learnt to read the warning signals and whenever he arrives home with his eyes flashing and nostrils flared, she finds a way to calm him down. All is clearly not well with the Gentry family. However, Lanre Gentry, has been remanded in Ikoyi prison custody after failing to meet his bail conditions.

Gentry, who were alleged to have physically assaulted his wife, Mercy, appeared before the court yesterday and pleaded not guilty to the charges leveled against him by the Lagos State Government. It would be recalled that the State Government waded into the alleged domestic violence after the actress reported her attack to the Lagos State Government through Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team (DSVRT). During the court proceeding, the trail magistrate, Mrs. Y.O. Aje-Afunwa, granted the defendant bail of N500, 000 after he pleaded not guilty to the charges. Aje-Afunwa added that Lanre must also provide tax verification and two sureties, one of whom must own property in Lagos State, just as she adjourned the case till July 12.

In fact, some of his old friends have also shunned him, leaving him to his fate, consigning all memories of the good times spent with him to the trashcan.
