Ok the Bello’s @funkejenifaakindele n @jjcskillz are being persecuted for breaking the law. Correct they shld be persecuted but ejor making a show at this extremely delicate n sensitive time of a pandemic is what I don’t understand. Are these people not more than 20?
Where’s the practice of social distancing? Whose breaking the law now?
Shldnt everyone in the video or the gatherer of the gathering be persecuted as well? tori eleyi o ye mi o.
Everyone in this video should be rounded up and put in isolation. Government risking people’s lives, just to show they are working. Ko buru!
Which way Nigeria ??
Naija n show off mentality
The guilty judging the guilty!
@jidesanwoolu pls sir look into this !

"To err is human.... We're pleading on her behalf🙏🙏
Sending lots of love, lights especially at this period"

Actor Yomi Fabiyi said 
My prayers and concerns are with you Funke Akindele. I am particularly happy that you explained and apologised. “I have known you to be a very disciplined individual who pays attention to details, public association or authority instructions

 “Your passion and desire to help save lives during this COVID-19 pandemic was quite rapid and evident. Hopefully, no immediate risk detected. “I join millions of your fans to say sorry and appeal for leniency.

Social distancing is relatively new and most who violate never did it deliberately, aim to hurt others or intentionally disobey or trivialise the matter. 

“Funke don’t assume this will define you in its entirety, after your many years of meticulous uprightness and service to the entertainment world in Nigeria, hang in there, this too shall pass away. I am with you. 

“Maintain your apologies to the government and Nigerians, it should work at this crucial moment. Nigerians and the government appreciate humility and honesty. I care mate, Pele."
