Senator Dino Melaye reacts to Funke Akindele’s prosecution
The news of the arrest and arraignment of top Nollywood actress and filmmaker Funke Akindele Bello and her husband, JJC Skills has been on the buzz for days now.
Within Nigeria recalls that Funke and her husband, JJC Skills were arrested for violating the Lockdown rule in Lagos, after she held a house party in celebration of her husband’s birthday about four days ago.
Following her prosecution, many Nigerians stood in defense of Funke, while condemning the demeanor of the Police and the judiciary.
The latest Nigerian to defend Funke is former federal law maker, Dino Maleye.
Dino Maleye in an Instagram post, called out the journalists, police and pressmen who were at the court to cover the court sitting. He reminded them of the social distancing they were promoting but have themselves failed to adhere to.
The sitting was done in Lagos State which is currently the state with highest record of corona virus.
“Journalists and Police covering social distancing case in court today in Lagos. Imagine the disrespect for the very social distancing they came to cover. God help us.”
