Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele has been arrested by the police for violating restriction orders in Lagos, Southwest Nigeria.

The actress hosted an in-house party in her Amen Estate on Saturday to mark the birthday of her husband, Abdul Rasheed Bello, better known as JJC Skillz.

Some celebrities, such as Naira Marley were in attendance.

Many social media users said her action is more condemnable as she is an ambassador of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), the Federal Government agency coordinating the nation’s response to the coronavirus.

A statement issued by Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Bala Elkana on Sunday said the attention of Lagos State Police Command was drawn to a viral video showing a large number of persons mainly in the entertainment industry in an Estate, along Ajah, Ibeju-Lekki axis, Lagos celebrating a birthday party organised by Funke Akindele Bello and her husband.

“Police detectives from the State CID Yaba were promptly drafted to the location. Funke Akindele was arrested. Investigation is ongoing.

“They are in their best interests urged to report at the State CID Yaba on Monday 6th April, 2020 or risk being declared wanted,” he said.
