Estranged husband of Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe, Lanre Gentry, has called on government to improve prison facilities across Nigeria instead of getting involved in issues of domestic violence.
Gentry said the Medium Prison, Kirikiri is supposed to be a correctional facility but instead, it is an overpopulated arena where people die every night.
Recall, Lanre was on May 9th, 2017 sent to Kirikiri prison, following allegation of domestic violence against his wife, Aigbe.
He was, however, released on Tuesday.
Upon his release, Gentry had said he had something to reveal to the world.
He said, “I have something to tell the world about my prison life and how it happened.
“Watch out for my story.”
But, in a post on his Instagram page, Gentry said, “Like I have said earlier that I have something to tell the world due to my fresh experience at the medium prison, (Kirikiri apapa)

“At the moment, I would like to say @realmercyaigbe’s effort sending me to jail was another privilege to see, say all which is going on over there. I think this place should be a rehabilitation center not a dumping ground, seven days and seven nights at the medium prison looks like i have spent a whole year in there.
“Over 3600 prisoners, where we are meant to have just 1500 prisoners. Prisoners are now more or less like beggars.
“I have been there not that am been told, people die every blessed day, am here to tell the whole world that please lets fight this out with our government because I see no reason why tax are being collected and nothing has been produce and provided through all this payment.
“Is it that they’ve forgotten this people are still Nigerian citizens?
“If I may say, government shouldn’t leave what they ought to do and start involving its selves in (domestic violence).
” I won’t say more than this tonight but more to come to come every night.”
