Colleague actress of Funke Akindele Bello, Uche Elendu has pleaded with her fellow Nigerians and the government to forgive and release Funke because of her twin babies.
Funke was arrested yesterday for flouting social distancing rule after she threw a birthday party for her husband.
The actress spent last night in SCID’s office in Panti, Lagos. Her husband JJC Skillz has turned himself in as the arrest occurred in his absence.
Apparently, Funke and her husband face a month jail term or a whopping amount of N100,000 fine if found guilty.
Reacting to that, actress Uche Elendu has jumped into the defence of Funke.
She has pleaded that the same way Nigerians used social media to cause her arrest, they should also beg for her freedom because of her twin babies.
She wrote, ‘ “Please release her. I don’t have any excuses to make for her cos the law is simple, No Social gathering !!!! but her humble and sweet spirit doesn’t deserve this arrest…We are Sorry on her behalf please @jidesanwoolu @balaelkana.
“She explained and apologised please listen and forgive, at least people ate food at the party, the people that clustered people to share 2 packs of Indomie in the name of Quarantine relief were not arrested, Please Forgive her #freefunkeakindele”
“Nigerians pls the same way you got her arrested through social media pls beg them to release her, her twins r crying”
