As the social distancing directive is being stringently implemented to curb the spread of Covid-19, a lot of people have been found going out of the ambit of the law thereby being victimized by the law daily.
Topping the list of those dragged into the court of questioning for going against the standing of the law is Funke Akindele, who has been arrested for throwing a house birthday party in the surge of Coronavirus.
The movie star didn’t just scribble away a love-in-Tokyo message for her hubby on Instagram but celebrated her husband, jjC skillz with a “loud” party as he became plus one during the weekend.
Having the likes of Naira Marley and Eniola Badmus at the party, the party was lit.
But, did it end well for her and her husband? No!
Here is the “kpim” of the gist!
Hours after the party, Funke Akindele and her hubby were called out, dragged on the street of social media for going against the stay-at-home and social distancing directive of the government which could lead to further spread of Covid-19.
According to social media users, it was very irresponsible of her to have thrown a party in the midst of all these, having more than 25 people present, mostly as she is the official ambassador of NCDC projecting the necessities to curb the spread of the Virus.
See few reactions:
Responding to the criticism of Nigerians, Jenifer as she is popularly called said the people present at the party were part of a production that had started in her studio before the lock down.
Taking to her Instagram page, she apologized for her acts, pledging to keep supporting the government in the fight against brother “Coro”.
But did this cut it for Nigerians and the authorities, Sadly No!
Following how much “gbas” “gbos” she received from Nigerians after the videos of the party was seen on Twitter, the Lagos state police command went to Funke’s house and arrested her.
But where was her husband during the arrest?
Anyway, according to Punch, Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Bala Elkana said Naira Marley, Eniola Badmus and jjC skillz (her husband) are wanted by the police as Funke Akindele had been taken to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti, Yaba.
Sweet-sad feeling it gives, right?
We could imagine.
But the question is, if it were someone else would this act had received the buzz it recieved on social media?
After the apologies from her and the arrest, don’t you think this should be allowed to rest, mostly now that she has been scapegoated?
What do you think of all these?
