Funke Akindele shared her anguish on Twitter, just after being arrested by the Lagos State Police for violating a lockdown order on Coronavirus. The Lagos State Government had issued an order which banned a public gathering of more than 20 people.
Nonetheless, the actress threw a party that had over 20 people in attendance to celebrate her husband. Nigerian singer, Naira Marley and Akindele’s friend, Eniola Badmus were at the party.
However, the actress incited outrage after being spotted in a viral video hosting a crowded birthday party for her husband, JJC Skillz on his 43rd birthday. So many online criticisms have rushed since the video went viral with so many Nigerians coming out to blast the mother of two for her outright negligence and disregard for the law.
It was reported earlier that Funke Akindele was arrested for violating restriction orders in Lagos. The Lagos State Police also disclosed that efforts are intensified to arrest the remaining persons in the video, among whom are Azeez Fashola a.k.a Naira Marley and the actress’ husband, Abdul Rasheed Bello a.k.a. JJC Skillz.
The actress wrote in a tweet she shared; “I just pray I survive this. I’m so broken”
In the same vein, friends and colleagues of the couple have weighed on the matter, with many pleading to the state government to be considerate in their actions and have mercy on them, since they sent out an apology.
