Few weeks ago, precisely on April 28, news broke out about how Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe has been suffering in the hands of her husband, Olanrewaju Gentry and many could not help but sympathize with her.
Following her outburst via Linda Ikeji’s blog, her husband was picked up by the police and locked up in Kirikiri prison for a period of seven days because he was unable to meet his N500,000 bail conditions. Meanwhile, the Nollywood actress had already moved out of her matrimonial home with her two children.
However, on granting her first interview with Broadway TV, Mercy Aigbe revealed that her husband whom had earlier accused her of being a cheat was also guilty of the same offence. With tears in her eyes, she explained how Gentry was having secret affairs with her best friend, Opemiti Ajayi and some of her personal assistants.
Following this accusation, her supposed best friend, has taken a drastic action on Mercy Aigbe and Linda Ikeji for publishing a false news. According to Goldmyne TV’s Instagram handle, Ajayi through her lawyer Afolabi Fashanu & Co has filed a defamation of character lawsuit against both parties over the alleged frivolous and malicious statements altered and published respectively by the duo.
Linda Ikeji on her part had exclusively broke the news on her blog that Opemiti AKA queen stunner was responsible for Mercy Aigbe’s failed marriage, thereby dragging her name in the mud without any backing evidence; an act of crime as codified in the cyber-crime laws of Nigeria.
The complaint’s lawyers have therefore demanded a retraction and public apologies from both Mercy Aigbe and Linda Ikeji in the media including their social platforms and also a total sum of 500 million naira each for damages.
