Actress/CEO, Mery Remmy Njoku has come out to advocate for the release of fellow actress, Funke Akindele-Bello following her arrest for hosting a house party during the Coronavirus-lockdown at her Amen Estate home in Lagos.
Yesterday, April 6, 2020, Akindele was picked up by men of the Nigerian police for flouting lockdown regulations and has been remanded at the State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti, Yaba since then.
Actress Mary Njoku criticized Funke’s arrest and asked if others who have held gatherings amid the lockdown have been arrested too.
The CEO of ROK Studios wrote: “Are all, I mean ALL the politicians, Pastors, Nigerians who have held parties, gatherings, photo sessions, rallies, and opening ceremonies in Jail? I am not making excuses for her Pls. Just asking. Cos if they are not…… Yes, She was wrong. Nobody is perfect. #releaseFunke. #SheIsSorry.”
Njoku was however called out by other social media users who asked her not to make any excuses for the actress.
