Mercy Aigbe the Nigerian actress, director and business woman who is best known for her Yoruba movies today shared a video clip showing her battered face. The shot is seemingly from her abused marriage which is undergoing divorce proceedings.
Mercy had earlier this year set the internet agog with images of her battered face, occasioned by an altercation with her estranged husband Lanre Gentry. The actress would later declare that her husband domestically abused her, after which the couple began a messy divorce drama.
Mercy Gentry has since then joined the movement to end any form of abuse on women, she today shared the video on her Instagram page for the campaign against domestic violence and the abuse of women.
The campaign will take off tomorrow at Falomo Bridge, Ikoyi, Lagos. Mercy urges her fans to come join the walk against domestic violence and battery.
