Mercy Aigbe goes down memory lane; offers support to domestic violence victims
Three years ago, Mercy Aigbe and her ex-husband, Lanre Gentry were in the news following domestic violence accusations.

The actress had taken to her Instagram page to share a couple of heartbreaking pictures that showed her battered face. She then accompanied them with a caption accusing her husband Lanre Gentry of domestic violence.

She wrote in part: “Dear Lanre Gentry, It breaks my heart that I have to do this but as it is you have left me with no choice……I had sleepless night because I just couldn’t comprehend why someone I loved , someone with whom I have a child will be hell bent on destroying me, I just cannot comprehend it……..

“I read with tears in my eyes all the LIES you fabricated against me, LIES you feel will justify your inhumane act, LIES you feel will gain you public sympathy and LIES calculated to bring my person to public opprobrium…”

He responded to her allegations by saying: “(Its) not true.” He was later arrested.

Now, Mercy Aigbe is going down memory lane. She took to her Instagram page to share a throwback picture from that period along with a message of support to domestic violence victims. She wrote:

“Stumbled on this pix in my photo gallery and it brought back memories ………….

“I want to reach out to someone out there! You think your life has been decimated by scars. You find it hard to forgive yourself and others that have been part of the messes in your life! I have good news for you!

“Your messes will soon become a message! Your errors are gradually turning you into a hero! Your trials will soon become triumph! Your adversity is turning to your advancement! Your frustration will soon become your fuel and your scars will one day turn you into a star….. at some point in our lives we experience trials, tribulations, we become broken ( which is inevitable)…. but whether we will become stronger is not inevitable, It’s OUR CHOICE……..

“”Never be ashamed of your scars, it simply means you were stronger than whatever tried to hurt you “ …… In Retrospect”
