Olanrewaju Gentry, the 52 year old hotelier and auto merchant estranged husband of star actress, Mercy Aigbe (38), spent his first night in Kirikiri Prisons (Apapa, Lagos) on Tuesday, May 9, 2017, following his remand on the orders of a magistrate.
Facing charges bordering on breach of the peace, physical assault and causing grievous bodily harm, he was arraigned before Mrs. Y. O. Aje Afunwa of Rosaline Omotoso Court, Ikeja (Lagos).
Though granted bail for N500,000 with two sureties in like sum, he could not perfect the conditions before the magistrate adjourned for the day – and was subsequently ordered to be remanded in jail.
The case was adjourned to Wednesday July 12, 2017, and he’s charged under sections 157, 168 and 171 of the Criminal Law of Lagos 2011. The case is being pursued by the Ministry of Women Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Domestic and Sexual Assault Response Team and the Office of the Public Defender.
