Critic, Femi Fani-Kayode has condemned the prosecution and conviction of Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele and her husband, Abdul Rasheed Bello, popularly known as JJC Skillz.

The police arrested Akindele on Sunday for hosting a birthday party for her husband with lots of people attending despite Coronavirus lockdown in Lagos.

They were convicted and sentenced to 14-day community service and N100,000 fine each by an Ogba Magistrates Court on Monday.

But Fani-Kayode said the prosecution and conviction of Akindele was overbearing and unnecessary.

He said a warning would have been enough, especially after she publicly expressed remorse.

Fani-Kayode, in a tweet wondered why those who crowded the court during the arraignment were not also prosecuted as they did not observe social distancing.

According to him, “The prosecution & conviction of Funke Akindele was overbearing & unnecessary. A warning would have been enough.

“This is especially so after she publicly expressed remorse. The court was crowded. Why don’t they prosecute those that were there as well, including the Magistrate?”
