The Lagos State Police Command has arrested Funke Akindele for hosting a party in contravention of the lockdown order in Lagos State.

The Lagos State Public Relations Officer, Bala Elkana, said that the actress had been taken to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti, Yaba.

He confirmed “yes, we have (arrested) Funke Akindele and we are looking for the others. She has been taken to SCID.”

Akindele, popularly known as Jenifa, who is married to singer, Abdulrasheed Bello aka JJC Skillz, held a party in his honour on Saturday.

The actress, who is said to be an ambassador for the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control and Dettol, has appeared in adverts calling on Nigerians to observe social distancing and hygiene.

She later apologised over the incident, saying most of those who attended the party were colleagues, who were living temporarily within the estate and could not return to their home states because of the lockdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Singer, Azeez Fashola aka Naira Marley, also graced the party, which had over 20 others in attendance.
