Lanre Gentry, the embattled husband of Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe has threatened legal action against TNS over a satirical piece written by the platform.
Despite the headline clearly stating that the conversation in the piece between the writer and the subject occurred in the writer’s head and the satire ending with a reminder that the piece is nothing more than fictional, @asiwajulanregentry threatened, in the comment section of the Instagram version of the post to contact his lawyers.

Legal actions are not new to the Lagos businessman as he is currently embroiled in one after Mercy Aigbe reported him to the law for alleged several domestic violence cases against her.
TNS is patiently waiting to hear from his lawyer.
