Following the call from angry social media users on the blatant disregard and violation of the social distancing order announced for all, Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele has been arrested by the men of the Nigerian Police Force.
Her husband, JJC Skillz, whose birthday was being celebrated in the viral video and popular singer,Naira Marley were also invited by the police.
However after being arrested, the actress took to her Twitter page to write a tweet, “I just pray I survive this. I’m so broken.”
As soon as the news hit social media, Nigerians started to react to it. Here are some reactions to her news:
This must be so hard for her to deal with. She has been living her life drama free, keeping all her business off social media and everyone has been admiring her for her acting and comic prowess. I’m fully in support of the outcry against Funke Akindele but I think we need to be a bit more circumspect with dragging culture! A person’s entire personality and legacy shouldn’t be defined by a single lose of judgment. The lesson here is “don’t be too quick to rush to the social media to do show off”. Also, I think a compulsory test should be done on her just to be sure she doesn’t have it.
