Meanwhile a man, Mr Babatunde Gbadamosi has apologized for attending Funke Akindele’s house party which was organized for husband Abdulrasheed Bello aka JJC Skillz amid the COVID-19 stay-at-home order of the government. 

The man said that he went to Abdulrasheed Bello aka JJC Skillz’s residence hoping that he will meet the family, but shortly after he got there a celebrity arrived and the celebrity had a lot of people with him. 

He also said that all those who were at the party were all residences of Gbadamosi close in Amen Estate. 

Reports have it that Akindele-Bello, who was arraigned today was arrested on Sunday and spent the night at the State Criminal Investigation Department SCID office in Panti, Lagos 

Recall that Funke Akindele had apologized to her fans saying “I have seen all the messages on Social Media. I will not intentionally mislead people.

 “It was my husband’s birthday (on Saturday). Both of us run a studio which is located in Amen Estate where we live.

 “When the pandemic started, we stopped all productions including our new projects. 

“But before the lockdown was announced by our President, some youths have been in the boot camp here in Amen Estate – majority of the youths were those you saw in the video. 

“Naira Marley came in here before the lockdown. And when the lockdown was announced, he said he would love to stay back, saying he loves this environment. 

“I said okay fine. Then my husband’s birthday came up. And we all came together as a family. 

“Everybody in that video had been in Amen Estate some months before, weeks before and days before the lockdown. Nobody came from their houses to party with us. 

“I am sorry if I have misled you. I appreciate your concerns and I promise to always practice what I preach. 

“I promise to always support the government in creating more awareness to eradicate this pandemic.”
