Nollywood actress, Adunni Ade has expressed her view on the arraignment and sentencing of actress Funke Akindele and her husband, JJC Skillz for violating the government’s directives on social gathering of not more than 25 people.
A magistrates court sitting in Lagos had on Monday, sentenced the couple to 14-day community service and a fine of 100,000 each.
The actress while agreeing that Funke and her husband deserved the punishment, said that something did not add up as she had read and watched videos over social media of people attending weddings, funeral, churches without an arrest.
“If you really do not understand the video she put up then you definitely need help comprehending. She is an extremely careful person and does all she can to to be a Law abiding citizen of this country. She has the same set of people around her, living with her. Same people who have been around her before the lock down. she chose to celebrate her husband with her family who have been in the house with her all along. I wish I could say much but damn, this is totally unfair. I hope you are happy whoever you are, wherever you are with this. No one is above the law but these folks have been with her for well over 2 weeks.”
“We read and watch videos all over social media of folks attending weddings, funeral, churches and the cops shutting it down, some form of harassment Or even preaching to them to stop church for now but never for once an arrest. I just saw the disgusting video of her in court and folks all around her, did y’all forget social distancing? The same reason she’s been arrested. No mask ? No gloves, nothing and she’s been arrested???? This is some Bull! Something ain’t adding up! I pray for you Sis! I pray for the twins.”
Meanwhile, Adunni Ade’s response to a follower sparked reactions as she said that the actress was arrested but she did not think the National leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) Bola Ahmed Tinubu could be arrested.
Although, she did not explain why she said that but many believed it has to do with the mini birthday celebration the National leader held at his residence on March 29.
