“I dated my girl for three years without sex. For her, I decided to remain celibate because she wasn’t ready for it.
After our Traditional marriage, she still refused and wouldn’t let me touch her at all.
We however fixed our wedding date. On my bachelor’s eve, my friends were around with their girlfriends.
I really wanted to have my woman to myself that night and I spoke to her about it but she turned me down as usual and begged me to wait a little longer. I agreed after all, we would be married soon.
At last D-DAY finally came and I was waiting patiently for the wedding ceremony to be over.
At 6pm, we were home relaxing. I called my wife and asked that we take a shower together, she said she was shy and cannot come. I didn’t force her.
She however had her bath first and I had mine later. When I finished, I came out to meet my wife asleep.
I joined her in bed, kissed her and she woke up. I’m not even sure she was really asleep. I started making advances because I really needed it. I had waited for too long.
My beloved wife started crying and begging me to wait till nightfall, that she needed to get some rest and when she wakes up, I’ll do all I so desire to do with her. I couldn’t hold it anymore but I managed to control the urge.
Around 9pm, we heard a knock on the door, and the person behind said he had come to drop a parcel sent to us by my mother.
I went to get the door and I was shocked to see five armed men in mask.
I begged them not to harm us. They asked for money but we had no money at home, after all we just got married.
To cut the story short, these men took turns in raping my wife.
She got disvirgin by the first right in front of me. Right in my own eyes.
I couldn’t bear it. I cried as I watched those heartless men force themselves on my wife.
They didn’t leave her until she was unconscious. After the entire tragedy, I called neighbours and we rushed her to the hospital.
After two days, she regained consciousness. I made sure she was fine.
But really guys, I cannot forget that day, My wife was disvirgined right in my presence.
I can’t touch her no more, i don’t even crave for her anymore.
I cannot live with her anymore. I want to file a divorce already. What would you advise me to do?”

Before Mercy Aigbe married her husband, she was aware of his love for pretty young girls. His hotel in Oregun Lagos was a rendezvous of sorts for his flirtations.
Unfortunately for him, the current economic recession has affected his business and he is not as wealthy as he used to be.
According to the family source,
In another twist to what happened on the day she was battered, another source said Lanre Gentry who was tired of Mercy Aigbe’s sudden boldness asked her to make his favourite meal for himself and his friends but the actress who had worked on a movie set all night long turned down his request, citing fatigue and need for more sleep.
Her husband was said to have pounced on her as he had done in the past but Mercy Aigbe who had had enough of the domestic abuse fought back bitterly, lashing out from all the pain and anger of her past years of abuse.
