Lagos hotelier Lanre Gentry has slammed his estranged wife, Mercy Aigbe for taking up the role of a widow ambassador when he is still alive.
Aigbe was recently confirmed as such by Felix King Foundation.
Lanre who could face up to three years in prison if found guilty of battery charges levelled against him by his wife at the Lagos magistrate court, also called out the government for destroying marriages.
In a message he posted on his Instagram page, Lanre wrote thus; “And to the government who directly or indirectly separates homes; shows the kind of government we have.

“Makes me wonder why someone will take up being a widow ambassador when her husband is not dead. What a messy world/generation we find ourselves where people no longer mind their business,” he added.
Meanwhile, reports say Lanre may just have realised the critical situation he is faced with in respect to the court case he is facing with his estranged wife.
Sources say Lanre is determined to mend fences with Mercy as he has reportedly met with family members of his estranged wife in company of his family members to end the feud between them and convince her (Mercy) to drop battery charges against him.
