Akindele-Bello's post comes barely 2 weeks after she caused outrage on social media.
The actress had on April 4, thrown a birthday bash for her husband, JJC Skillz and in a video which surfaced on the internet, the likes of Naira Marley and other invited guests were present at their house.
This caused outrage on social media as many people accused her of going against the ban on social gathering which was put in place by the Lagos state government to control the spread of coronavirus.
Akindele-Bello was later arrested and subsequently prosecuted. The actress and her husband were both convicted and got 14 days community service and were also fined N100k each.
Recall a while ago, a Nigerian lawyer took to social media to explain in detail why Funke Akindele and her husband's conviction can't stand.
Identified as Inibehe Effiong, he stated that their conviction is unconstitutional. According to him, there is no provision under the Public Health Law or Infectious Disease Regulations that makes gathering with more than twenty persons a criminal offence.
