The Lagos State Police Command has charged famous Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele, popularly known as Jenifa, and her husband, Abdulrasheed Bello, a.k.a JJC Skillz, to court for hosting a house party in violation of the lockdown order in Lagos State.
The Police Public Relations Officer, Bala Elkana, confirmed that the Akindeles were taken to a Chief Magistrates Court in Ogba, Lagos.

In violation of the order, the Akindeles hosted a house party to celebrate her husband JJC’s birthday at her residence in Amen Estate Ibeju-Lekki in Lagos on Sunday.
The gathering led to their arrest and a couple of other guests.
According to the Police Public Relations Officer, they were arraigned for breaching the Lagos Infection Diseases Regulations 2020 (the Regulations).
The offense carries a jail term of one month or N100,000 fine or both for persons found guilty of hosting gatherings or flouting the lockdown order.
