Less than 24 hours after hosting a house party to celebrate her husband’s birthday, popular comic actress, Funke Akindele has been arrested by operatives of the Lagos State Police Command.
Akindele, who contravened the state government’s ban on social gatherings, was picked up on Sunday by officers, who stormed her residence in Amen Estate, off Lekki-Epe Expressway.
Confirming her arrest, the Public Relations Officer of the State Police Command, Bala Elkana, disclosed to newsmen that the Force was also on the trail of other guests at the party.
He added that the actress had been moved to the State Criminal Investigation Department in Panti, Yaba.
INSIDER had earlier reported that thousands of Nigerians on social media had called for Mrs Akindele’s arrest, describing her defiance of the state government’s directive as criminal.
