Actor and media personality, Uti Nwachukwu has slammed fans for persecuting Funke Akindele following her arrest and subsequent sentencing for holding a party during the Coronavirus lockdown in Lagos.
Uti asked that anyone who has truly followed the lockdown rules completely should “cast the first stone”. He further opined that fans were very fickle by nature saying that the same ones who praise you are the ones aching to see you fall from grace.
Uti also pleaded with Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to fine and release the actress after she and her husband Abdulrasheed Bello aka JJC Skillz, pleaded guilty to the one-count charge of defiling the orders of the Lagos state government on public gatherings and social distancing.
“NIGERIA: the same ones screaming I love u! The same ones Begging you for help, the same ones admiring you ARE THE SAME PEOPLE That clamour for your persecution at the slightest misstep🤦🏾♂️🤦🏾♂️
One of the first lessons I learnt early: don’t fall for most of the praises of the ones that claim they are FANS! Unless tried and tested. They ache to see you fall from grace !! But not this time!! STAND STRONG FUNKE! .
He who has obeyed this SHUTDOWN 100% should cast the First stone …
She has apologised … She has even tweeted that she is broken, if that doesn’t scream remorse I don’t know why else would
H.E @jidesanwoolu Please Please Please impose a Fine and Free #freejenifa 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾”
The actress and husband, JJC Skillz real name Abdulrasheed Bello have been sentenced to 14 days of community service and fined the sum of N100,000 each.
