Lagos state writes police to transfer Mercy Aigbe's domestic abuse case files

The Lagos State Government has written a letter through the Directorate of Public Prosecutions, DPP, demanding that the Nigerian Police should forward the duplicate of the case file on the alleged domestic assault meted out on actress Mercy Aigbe by her husband Lanre Gentry.

The letter indicated the interest of the state government in prosecuting the assault case in the earliest possible time so that both victim and offender can have their case resolved promptly. 
 
This is in line with the statement made by the State Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr. Adeniji Kazeem, during this year’s ministerial briefing 

Mr Kazeem said: “The DPP is committed to ensuring that all offenders are brought to book thereby discouraging impunity in our society. We are also committed to speedy trials, especially so that suspects are not detained for too long awaiting trial. It is our belief that both the victims of a crime and the alleged offenders deserve to have their cases resolved at the earliest possible time.” 

Vanguard reports that the resolve to write the Police was sequel to the result of the recent medical check-up conducted on Mercy Aigbe that indicated alleged assault by her husband.  Asides writing to the Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of the State Criminal Investigative Department, SCID, Panti, Yaba, Lagos Mainland Local Government, DPP also copied other relevant agencies, to alert them of its plan.

It would be recalled that the Coordinator of the State Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team, DSVRT, Mrs. Titilola Vivour- Adeniyi, had argued during a sensitization programme that Domestic Violence is a crime committed against the State. She said that if anyone is abused, the state is also being abused, hence our mindsets have to change and domestic violence has to be treated as a crime against the state.

domestic violence is a very important issue. too many women in Nigeria see psychological and physical violence. for this reason, police and civil society organizations have an important role

now lanre gentry is in real trouble which means that the domestic abuse and assault case would stay opened till he gets sentenced for the crime he committed. if a woman is a cheat or a nag just divorce her.

Yes i know this is the type of criminal case the state police will be interested in prosecuting "domestic violence". What of ikorodu killings? Have you found the cult called badoo? Misplaced priority. If you like transfer the case to SARS

Common sense did not even tell u that it is good dis is going round bcos of her status, so that he who has ears and muscles (which they best use in beating their wives) hear and thread carefully. U r there threatening to beat up ur wife. Go ahead and do that, u never kw who might take up her case, u just might see. Ewuuuuu! Abeg shift go one corner!!

ANONYMOUS 09.57 IS VERY CORRECT,LET CRITICAL AND HONESTLY JUDGE THESE CASE,BEFORE THESE MAN CALLED GENTRY LANRE CAN DO THESE,THE WIFE HAS DEFILED THEIR MARITAL VOWS,WITH ONE THESE BIG POLITICIANS.

Many innocent persons are languishing in prison even after their case files are transferred to the office of the D.P.P for legal advice, which advice takes several months to be presented to the court. Now it is the D.P.P writing the police to forward Mercy Aigbe's case file to them. How I wish they can do this for thousands of cases of innocent persons awaiting trial whose case files are either with the police several months after police investigation, or holed up in the office of the D.P.P awaiting legal advice for years. While I feel Gentry must face the law if he had committed any criminal offence, I think someone up there has an interest in this case, which is beyond the course of justice

I love Lagos State. They dont take nonsense. Other States should emulate

Akinolu said...

You hypocrite hiding under anonymous and saying u will beat your wife, you better let your wife know that u are a wife beater before you marry her and lets see whether any woman will agree to marry you. Na women wey dey agree to marry such men i blame and even after they find out that their husbands are violent, they will still stay in the marraige giving flimsy excuse that it is for the sake of the children. Stay there until he kills you. Rubbish!

Sam said...

@Anonymous 09:57 You are a fool you sound like Mercy's bush husband replying under anonymous. Anytime a man and a woman have a quarrel, the man will start calling the woman names like ashawo, prostitute etc, She is sleeping with this & sleeping with that. This is an old line. Please try a new line. We are tired of hearing that line. Whether your wife sleeps with heaven and earth, u have no right to hit her. Instead, go to her people that u gave her bride price and return the bride price. She is somebody's child. So u have no right to hit her and it's even against the law. Na because Mercy no get brothers. If na me be Mercy brothers, i for blind her husband eye. Next time, he will learn not to lay hands on women. Stupid man!

Francis said...

@daniel ubong If women insult, insult them back. Why should you hit another man's child? Na you born the woman? You know how her parents suffer to born her and raise her before you marry her? If that was how her father was beating her, you for no see her marry. So na only women wicked just because she report the case? The man wey beat her no wicked? Ode

Osa said...

IF SHE DEFILED HER MARITAL VOWS, IT STILL DOESNT JUSTIFY HIS BEATING HER. HE SHOULD SIMPLY DIVORCE HER. DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IS PUNISHABLE BY LAW. RECEIVE SENSE. EWU

Ben said...

@Anonymous 12:29 If she is screwing someone highly placed, does it justify domestic violence? Does it make it right? You people commenting rubbish here need some education on domestic violence. Touts!

Anonymous said...

Her ex-husband showed her too by beating her. Its pay back time

Michael said...

Where u in the bedroom where she was screwing the highly placed man? Do u have a video clip as proof that she screwed somebody? If not, just shut up. Idiot

Human rights lawyer said...

@Linda Ekemezie Why didnt you tell her husband this same thing when he looked Mercy in the eye and beat her up mercilessly. Her husband shared a bed with her and said i love u to her and he still beat her up like an animal and u are talking rubbish. That means you are supporting domestic violence. Fool

And so what if someone has an interest in the case? She is a celebrity and a Nollywood actress. Dont forget that Desmond Elliot is a Nollywood actor and also an honourable in Lagos State House of Assembly. Even if she doesnt know anybody at the top, She is a celebs and people know her and are willing to help her. She has made a name for herself. You too go and work hard and make a name for yourself too so that people are the top will recognise you and be willing to help you instead of criticising and talking trash here
