Series of videos shared on Instastories show that the number of guests who attended the party were above the approved number of people in gathering as ordered by the government.

Many Nigerians have taken to social media to express their disappointment in the celebrity couple especially as Funke who was used by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) to sensitize citizens on the coronavirus scare.

However, in light of the backlash, the actress has defended her action on why she held a party at her house in celebration of her husband’s birthday, despite the government ban on any social gathering.

In a now-deleted tweet, the actress responded to a Nigerian who stated that losing her endorsement may be as a result of “plain stupidity” and not a matter of “witch hunt”, said:

“Uncle don’t create unnecessary sensation. #omoghettothesaga was to be filmed Before the lockdown and some of us had been camped in Amen estate. So we had to stay in there. So we are safe and happy!! Let’s not be NEGATIVE!!”

She further stated: “We all have been together for over two weeks. We are safe and take all precautions.”

Well, many angry Nigerians are not backing down, they are calling for the arrest of the actress and her husband for their “thoughtlessness.”
