Nollywood actress and producer, Funke Akindele has justified why she held a party in her Amen Estate home on Saturday despite the government’s directive on social gathering of more than 20 people.
The actress who celebrated her husband’s birthday in a lavish house party on Saturday, took to her social media page to explain the reason for hosting people in her home.
In a now deleted tweet, Funke Akindele said she has been together with everyone in the party for over two-weeks.
“Thanks for the love guys!!!! We all have been together for over two weeks. We are safe and take all precautions!!! #ameestate is home for all.”
Nigerians have since expressed their displeasure in the actress act. They described the act as highly irresponsible and disappointing, and described Akindele who happens to be an ambassador to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, NCDC and Dettol as a bad example to the nation.
They also urged the government to arrest them and quarantine everyone who attended the party.
