- Nollywood actress Mercy Aigbe and estranged husband Lanre Gentry have been having marital problems for some months now
- Mercy says this is because Lanre is an abusive husband and often beats her

On Friday, April 28, NAIJ.com reported that Mercy Aigbe was rushed to the hospital due to injuries she received on her face. Mercy eventually revealed that her injuries were given to her by her husband Lanre Gentry who she said is abusive and violent to her.
Now, it seems Lanre is ready to bury the hatchet. In a new online post made on Friday, June 30, Lanre publicly apologized to Mercy on his Instagram page.
In his words: “For peace to reign, I’m going to bury all hatchet and break the bone of contention between myself and Mercy Aigbe Gentry. I’m sorry to those who I’ve hurt with my actions and comment/words. Mercy, you claimed that I’m begging you behind curtains, OK here I am begging you openly. I’m sorry!!! This drama is exhausting and I’m done with it all."
"Despite all that’s been happening; I don’t love you less. I still see you as the mother of my children and I want to give you the respect to that regard."
