By Modupe Gbadeyanka

Estranged husband of Nigerian actress, Mercy Aigbe, Mr Lanre Gentry, has been released from prison after he met his bail conditions.

Last Tuesday, Mrs Aje-Afunwa Ogba of the Ikeja Magistrate court had granted bail to the businessman in the sum of N500,000 with two sureties in the like sum.

This was after he was charged with assault and domestic violence. He was accused of hitting his wife and causing her bodily harm.

Mr Gentry would have been released on Monday, but for the Lagos Magistrates conference that took place same day, which made it impossible for the Magistrate handling his case to confirm his bail.
