BREAKING: Court sentence Funke Akindele, husband to 14 days community service
A magistrate court sitting in Lagos has sentence Nollywood star, Funke Akindele and her husband JJC to 14 days community service.
The court also directed Funke and husband to pay a fine of 100,000 each.
The judge ruled that each defendant shall visit 10 important public places within Lagos State to educate the public on the consequences of non-compliance with the restriction order, and they must submit the names and phone numbers of every person who attended the party.
“They shall be placed on isolation by the State Government to determine their COVID-19 status and failure to abide by the above directives shall attract more severe punishments,” the court ruled.
Akindele on Saturday organised a house party to celebrate her husband JJC’s birthday at her residence in Amen Estate Ibeju-Lekki in Lagos.
Some of the dignitaries that attended the party included; Naira Marley, Rasheed Gbadamosi, a former Lagos state governorship aspirant among others.
The Federal Government last week ordered a total lockdown for residents of Lagos, Abuja and Ogun States to curb the spread of COVID-19. Remember that the party in her Lagos mansion was held to celebrate the birthday of her husband, producer JJC Skillz.
