Mercy Aigbe Slammed With N500m Lawsuit
19 May 2017 Sport
Mercy Aigbe‘s former friend Opemititi Ajayi has slammed the actress and Linda Ikeji with a N500Million lawsuit.
Ajayi is suing each for alleging she slept with Lanre Gentry and destroying the actress’s marriage.
According to the letter prepared by her attorneys, the 500Million is to ‘repair’ the damages caused by the defamatory publications and statement.
Mercy Aigbe and Linda Ikeji have just seven days to satisfy this demand.
Meanwhile, the actress’ husband, Lanre Gentry, who was released after fulfilling his bail condition has accused the Nigerian government of neglecting those in prison and focusing on other things.
The Hotelier was remanded in Kirikiri prisons on Tuesday, May 9, after he was arrested for allegedly assaulting his Nollywood actress wife.
Gentry was arraigned at an Ogba Magistrate Court 1 sitting at Ogba, Ikeja, on three count charges under the State Criminal law 2011.
Gentry was subsequently slammed with a restraining order that keeps him no less than one mile of Mercy Aigbe’s location at all times.
The couple was married for seven years and share a son together.
