Drama as Nollywood actress and estranged husband engage in Father’s Day war of words

In the aftermath of the crisis that rocked the marriage of Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe to her hotelier hubby, Lanre Gentry and the eventual court issues that followed, recent developments indicate that the crisis might not be nearing its end soon.

As Mainland residents and others across the world celebrated Fathers Day yesterday, Sunday, June 17, 2018, the thespian took to her social media page to share a message with her followers which drew a reaction from her estranged husband.

The actress posted a cryptic post that: “Happy Father’s Day to me and to all the beautiful, strong single mothers out there!!!!. Almost 17 years of single parenting and God has been awesome!. To all the real fathers, standing up to their responsibilities I say may the lord continue to increase you in every area of your lives IJN.

“To the yeye association of Sperm donors I say continue oh! Nemesis will catch up with you! Surely That rejected stone will become the chief cornerstone and y’all will bite your fingers in regret! ….. on a second thot this useless men should be forced to stand up to their responsibilities!.

“Does anyone know if there is a child support law in NIGERIA? And if there is I think it’s about time it’s enforced!!!…. so all these jabajantis ‘Fadas’ will sit up!. If you agree with me, gather in the comment section let us take a Selfie with huge Smile on our faces.”

In a direct response to the post shared by the actress, her alienated husband, Lanre Gentry also took to social media to share a post saying: “Happy father’s day to me, I thank God for my life and I genuinely love my kids and I take good care of them, from paying their school fees and taking full responsibilities including my Juwon Gentry and even Mitchell, I have proof and I will never stop taking care of them, once again happy fathers day to me and I am proud to say that”.

The posts have however generated a myriad of mixed comments from followers in the camp of the actress and her ex-hubby who didn’t spare words for one another.
