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.
