The Police in Lagos State have arrested popular Nollywood Actress, Funke Akindele, for organising alleged crowded birthday party in honour of her husband, Abdul Rasheed Bello a.k.a. JJC Skillz,
 in a high brow Ajah - Lekki  area of the State in audacious disobedience to the state and Federal Governments' directive on COVID - 19, which restricts all large gatherings.

Her swift arrest followed uproar and concern raised by neighbours and witnesses who captured the public health risky conduct of Funke Akindele and her husband with their phone cameras and caused the pictures to go viral.

Many also took to the social media, calling on the authorities to storm the venue and arrest the actress who could not live by what she preaches about COVID - 19 to her fans and Nigerians on social media platforms since the outbreak of the disease in Nigeria last February 28.
