The police have arrested Nollywood actress and producer, Funke Akindele, in Lagos State.
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 Elkana, singer Azeez Fashola, also known as Naira Marley and JJC Skillz were among those seen at the party.
He asked the duo to report at the State CID Yaba on Monday in their interest or risk being declared wanted.
Funke Akindele would either get one month jail term or pay a fine of 100,000 naira or most probably, a community service.
