Nigerians Drag Funke Akindele For Violating Social Distancing Order

Nigerians are dragging popular Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele for violating the social distancing order imposed by government, as the world battles the dreaded coronavirus pandemic.

The Jenifa’s Diary act was dragged for hosting a birthday party for her husband inside a crowded room with friends and family members in attendance, which clearly is a violation of the social distancing directives issued by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), inorder to slow down the spread of the coronavirus in the country.

Funke Akindele who coincidentally, is said to be an Ambassador to NCDC and one of those that has been preaching against social gathering, and urging for social distancing during this period, was caught on tape with her husband and friends violating what she has been preaching against.

After a live Instagram video from the birthday party she hosted for her husband surfaced online, showing a crowded room with her friends and family member celebrating, despite the lockdown, Nigerians who have been at a disadvantage with the whole lockdown order, trooped to social media to call her out for risking the lives of others just for the sake of celebrating a birthday.

While some called her names for her actions, others argued that the couple were putting their lives and that of other Lagosians at risk for going ahead with the party despite all warnings.

Also, they feared that that singular act can further increase the rate of infected persons in Lagos, given that some of the guests recently returned from the United Kingdom which has recorded one of the highest rate of confirmed cases and deaths from the deadly coronavirus pandemic in the world.

See some of the bashing she has received on Twitter:

Dear @NCDCgov your Ambassador Funke Akindele, Her Husband JJC, Eniola Badmus, Naira Marley & the Entire Family threw a packed House Party Ystd. I love Funke & have nothing against her but Everyone in that House should be Forcefully Quarantined. Pls treat as Urgent.

Funke Akindele’s excuse is stupid, it is silly and is actually a shameful lie. So Naira Marley has been living in your house for 14 days? That restless Naira Marley? Really? And even if it were true Why are people in your house for 14 days? I

@aproko_doctor

Pay attention to what people do and not what they say. A few million naira and a camera and Funke Akindele will say anything you want her to say regardless of whether she believes it or not. What she did made the work harder for the NCDC she is supposed to be representing.

@UgwunnaEjikem

I’d be very plain. If you are defending Funke Akindele & co. You are a very stupid person…its that simple. Tomorrow you come and troll Lauretta, Tolu & co for being sycophants, at least they are being stupid for a paycheck. But you? You are being stupid for free

@Tife_fabunmi

It’s actually disappointing when we see educated people act like illiterates. Imagine a NCDC ambassador who is aware of what’s right and still doing the opposite Even if you don’t care about your own health, what about those that attended the party? Funke Akindele messed up mehn”.

These were the photos posted by Funke Akindele, showing her husband and children cutting the birthday cake, before the viral video. It’s clear that from these photos, she never wanted that viral video to go out in the public, as posting these photos alone on her socail media without the video going out, would have saved her from all the bashing, but someone somehow was not in the mood…lol..
