She almost died after the last beating, so Mercy Aigbe took to her heels.

The Nollywood actress was beaten so badly that it affected her eyesight and made her bleed internally for days.

"He beats me consistently. I stayed because I loved him and because every time he beats me, he begs and gets family and friends to beg me. He promised regularly to change but he never did.

"When my husband gets angry, he gets physical, not only to me but to anyone. He has done that with my house help who reported him to the Police years ago.

"I stayed because of my children and because a lot of people look up to me. I was a role model of some sort and I really wanted to keep it together. I just wanted a home.

"This last beating was brutal. I actually thought I was going to die. I’m still coughing and sneezing blood even after three weeks."

On the day of the incident, Mercy says she had informed her husband that she was attending a burial of her colleague. 

After his hesitance, she explained that it would not be fair on the lady since she had promised to be there and even invited him to come along.

Mercy revealed that it was her refusal to go and pick her husband while she was still at her designer’s place that brought his fury. 

He was said to have driven there and started to beat her in the presence of everybody.

Her husband was remanded in Ikoyi prisons after failing to meet the bail conditions giving to him by a court in Ogba, where he was charged for assault and battery.
