BREAKING: Lagos to prosecute Funke Akindele over husband’s birthday party

Nollywood star, Funke Akindele may be prosecuted today. She will be charged before Ogba Magistrate Court 1 at about 11 a.m.

The prosecuting team will be from the Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP). 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.

Akindele has appeared in a Nigeria Centre for Disease Control video to raise awareness about coronavirus. She has defended the party, saying that everyone who was there had been living in her house for two weeks.

Under the lockdown, all gatherings of more than 25 people have been banned in Lagos, Nigeria’s biggest city, which has an estimated population of about 20 million people.

It is not clear from the video, posted online by JJC Skillz, whether the party exceeded that limit – but it has nevertheless been widely condemned for setting the wrong example.

Details shortly…
