Funke Akindele was on the 4th of April 2020 arrested for organising a birthday party for her husband. She was arrested alongside Naira Malley and others that graced the event.
She was arrested because she went against the rule of sit at home and avoiding social distance.
The veteran Nollywood actress has taken to her social media account to inform her fans about this event and how deeply she is sorry.
The birthday party organised by Funke and her husband went against this rule and that lead to their arrest.
The Lagos state government has earlier announced that citizens should avoid social gatherings of any kind. This was a way of curtailing the spread of COVID-19 in the state.
Akindele accepted that she was guilty of the offence before a court sitting in Lagos. She and her husband were asked to pay a sum of one hundred thousand naira (#100,000) each.
Funke was to report to the state police the names and phone numbers of those who attended the party. If they don’t respond within 24 hours, they shall be declared wanted.
