The Police Public Relations Officer in Lagos, Bala Elkana, confirmed this in a statement on Sunday.

He explained that the actress was arrested for violating the restriction orders in the state as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The state government had restricted social gatherings in the state to not more than 20 people, as well as urged residents to maintain social distancing.

According to the government, the restriction order affects churches, mosques, weddings, and other forms of social function that can attract a large crowd of people.

In the statement on Sunday, Elkana said the Lagos State Police Command noted a viral video showing a large number of persons mainly in the entertainment industry.

He stated that the crowd was celebrating a birthday party organised by Funke Akindele and her husband, Abdul Rasheed Bello – popularly known as JJC Skillz, in an estate along Ajah in the Ibeju-Lekki area of the state.

The command’s spokesman revealed that police detectives from the State Criminal Investigation Department (CID), Yaba were promptly drafted to the location where the actress was arrested.

He noted that the police had commenced investigation while making efforts to arrest other persons identified in the video.

The police further invited Azeez Fashola a.k.a Naira Marley and Abdul Rasheed Bello a.k.a. JJC Skillz to report at the State CID Yaba on Monday for questioning.
