#1in3Africa! “No Shame In My Pain”… Mercy Aigbe Speaks Out Against Domestic Violence

Ever since Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe brought to light that she was a victim of Domestic Violence while she and her estranged husband Lanre Gentry, she has been a strong advocate for the fight against the menace.

In line with this, the actress teamed up with Queen Wuraola of Ile-Ife’s #1in3Africa Campaign alongside Tonto Dikeh, the Emir of Kano and others as they spread awareness and call to action to end domestic violence and sexual abuse against women across the continent.

Mercy alongside her fellow campaign mates will be setting out for an awareness walk tomorrow, in order to create awareness and advocate for people to come out for the walk, the actress shared a video on her Instagram page after she was allegedly beaten by her estranged husband.

She wrote:

Violence is not an option! It is inhumane and shouldn’t be condoned!…………..
#saynotodomesticviolence?
#noshameinmypain?
#speakout
Battery and Assault is a crime punishable under the law!
Join us tomorrow for the walk against domestic violence!
Start off point is at Falomo Bridge by Awolowo Road….10 am

She went further to share a screen shot of a conversation between herself and Lanre Gentry in which he asked her to take down her posts on domestic violence.

“Why will a man who obviously beat his wife, try so much to deny what he did? My take is because he knows what he did is wrong and apparently he is ashamed and cannot own up to it…… Let us be very careful of what we do especially when we are Angry as we might not know the consequences of that action…….Violence like I keep saying does not and will not solve anything, let us learn to control our anger at all times….. Arguments are bound to happen between couples but under no circumstances should we let it result to violence! Nobody has a right to hit, his or her partner regardless……..
Battery and Assault is a CRIME!
