#NoMercyForLanre: Mercy Aigbe’s husband loses in public court

Larry Gentry & Mercy Aigbe7

Olanrewaju Gentry, the husband of star actress, Mercy Aigbe, remanded in Kirikiri Prisons (Apapa, Lagos) on the orders of Mrs. Y. O.  Aje Afunwa of an Ikeja (Lagos) magistrate court, is also losing in the court of public opinion.

Trending on twitter is #NoMercyForLanre with little sympathy for the 52 year old hotelier and auto merchant whose 7-year marriage to the 38 year old mother of his 6 year old son (Olajuwon) appears irreparably damaged.
With accusations of domestic violence, assault causing grievous bodily harm and breach of the peace, Gentry is still struggling to perfect his bail conditions (of N500,000 with two sureties in  like sum) as ordered by the magistrate on Tuesday, May 9.
The public spat of the once-upon-a-time lovebirds has been the object of amusement and entertainment as well as deep concern for Nigerians.
Here are some of the tweets on #NoMercyForLanre:
