While reacting to the arrest of his colleague, Funke Akindele and her husband, JJC Skillz, Nollywood actor Yul Edochie has penned down his pains in the whole drama.
Taking to Twitter, the Anambra State born seasoned actor said he’s tired of the country Nigeria for not obeying simple rules, yet crucifying those that did their best but made little mistake.
He wrote, “This country sef, I tire. You arrest Funke for not observing social distancing and take her to court.Right there in court, everybody is clustered.Outside the court all the reporters are clustered.No social distancing observed at all.Shouldn’t they all be arrested as well?If one infected person was part of the whole arrest and court process, everybody don carry am be dat.
This country, who do us like dis?”
This is coming shortly after Funke Akindele- Bello and her husband, Abdulrasheed Bello aka JJC Skillz, were sentenced to 14-day community service, N100,000 fine each and isolation for 14 days for flouting the social distancing regulations; enacted by the Lagos State Government.
They had hosted a well-attended birthday party at their residence in Amen Estate, Lekki, Ajah, Lagos on Saturday.
The star actress and her musician husband were arraigned before a Magistrate Court in Ogba, Lagos State on Monday.
After being read the charges preferred against them by Magistrate Yetunde Aje-Afunwa, both of them pleaded guilty.
The Lagos State Infection Diseases Regulations 2020 prescribes a jail term of one month or N100,000 fine or both; for persons found guilty of hosting gatherings or flouting the lockdown order.
