According to findings, Mercy, mother of 2, has dragged her husband, Lanre to the Lagos State Ministry of Women Affairs for investigation and prosecution over alleged battery and assault. A top official revealed that the case has been brought to the attention of the body; stressing it is a matter of urgency due to the mandate given to the ministry by Governor Akinwunmi Ambode to crack down on domestic violence especially against women.
“Truely, the case is with us here. It was reported here by the victim herself, and because of the governor’s zero tolerance for domestic violence, we are as a matter of urgency investigating the whole drama.
It is a good thing that it has also been brought to the public eye. We’re still very much on top of the matter and we’ll get it to its logical conclusion,” he said.
Recall that the husband has in an earlier report denied that he beats his wife everyday.
