Kito Alert: This Is The Hotelier Whose Business You Should Not Patronise

Kito Alert: This Is The Hotelier Whose Business You Should Not Patronise

His name is Olanrewaju Michael Gentry, on Facebook as Asiwaju Lanre Gentry, and he is the manager of La Veronique Hotel in 14 Oregunwa Street.

His claim to infamy is as the ex-husband of Mercy Aigbe, who was involved in a contentious divorce with the actress.

It was in his hotel that the victim of Shile Otaru’s kito efforts booked into with the intention to meet Shile Otaru. When hell broke loose and the victim began crying out for help, demanding for the security guaranteed him by the hotel as their guest, Lanre Gentry, instead turned on him, acting instead on behalf of the criminals. Asking the victim to give them money for them to let him go. Despite several threats of taking him to the police, which the victim himself welcomed, the hotel management never called the police.

Instead, exasperated by the victim’s persistent protests that he didn’t have any money, Lanre Gentry had him thrown out, callously into the hands of the criminals. The victim demanded a refund of the money he’d lodged into the hotel with (a stay that hadn’t even lasted an hour), so he could use the money to at least pay off his assaulters, and Lanre Gentry refused.

So, this man not only didn’t provide any security for a guest of his hotel, showing a shocking lack of any sense of hospitality, but refused to refund him his money. Wickedness and greed appear to be the motto of this hotel, which is in the best interest of no one to lodge into.

  1. […] And here’s the plot twist: The hotel management was involved, the hotel itself managed by Olanrewaju Michael Gentry. If you are familiar with the name and you are thinking about how he reminds you of actress Mercy Aigbe’s abusive ex-husband, then you’d be right. Apparently, he is not only an abusive husband but a homophobic man with no sense of hospitality required to run a hotel, seeing as he not only tried to encourage the victim to give up money to the criminals assaulting him, but threw him out into the hands of the criminals, money nonrefunded. (Details of this in the next post) […]

    Oh my goodness! Even hotels are no havens. One thing is to get wind of these “kitoers”, another thing is to bring them to justice. But, we can only lament and let the oppressors go scot-free.

    We should probably form our own task force to tackle these issues, lol. Far from being insensitive, I think these inactions have gone scot-free far too long
