Lanre Gentry, the estranged husband of Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe, was on Tuesday sent to Kirikiri Prison in Lagos. This followed Gentry’s arraignment before an Ikeja Magistrate Court for alleged battering of Aigbe.
He was taken before the court by the Lagos State Government. Among the bail conditions, which Gentry could not immediately meet, was producing two sureties in the sum of N500,000 each, with one having a property in the jurisdiction of the court.
By the time Gentry got the sureties, the presiding magistrate was said to have closed for the day. He will spend the night in Kirikiri Prison.
