Taking to his Instagram page, the actor in a lengthy post stated that in serious matters with a criminal undertone, people should stop relying on their discretion, jungle justice or social media.

I cover my face in shame at our leaders: Funsho Adeolu speaks on Iyabo Ojo, Nkechi Blessing’s TAMPAN ban
Excerpt from his post read:
"In serious matters particularly with criminal undertone, stop relying on your own discretion, jungle justice, social media or emotions. Inform law enforcement, your lawyer and trust them to handle it. The COURT of LAW is a different ball game. Social Media and comment section easily follow the narrative the person posting want to play in people's head and that will keep giving the politicians reasons to want to cage this vital tool aiding our freedom of expression. Don't give them that chance."
