The Lagos State Government has declared its intention to fully prosecute all the attendees at the birthday party that was hosted by Actress, Funke Akindele-Bello and her Hubby, JJC Skillz.
The state Attorney-General, Mr Moyosore Onigbanjo (SAN), said on Monday that they would be prosecuted for flouting social distancing order of the state.
He disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) shortly after an Ikeja chief magistrates’ court convicted and sentenced Akindele-Bello and her husband for flouting the regulation.
Chief Magistrate Yewande Aje-Afunwa had sentenced Akindele and her husband to 14 days community service each.
The actress had on April 4 hosted many people including Azeez Fashola (alias Naira Marley) to her husband’s 43rd birthday party at their residence located at Amen Estate, Eleko Beach Road, Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos. Videos of the party were posted and circulated on social media platforms.
According to the police, efforts are ongoing to arrest other persons featured in the video.
