For a few days now, the Nigerian social media has been rent with discussions about Nollywood actress Funke Akindele-Bello and the run-in she had with the law.
The Nollywood film star had hosted a birthday party at her abode in Amen estate, Lagos, and videos from the occasion made the rounds on social media.
A number of Nigerians were angered by it seeing as the government had ordered a lockdown and for people to stay at home and practise social distancing due to the coronavirus pandemic.
