Actress Uche Elendu has appealed to the Lagos state government and the police to release her colleague, Funke Akindele-Bello, for the sake of her twins. Funke Akindele was arrested yesterday by men of the Lagos State police command after she shunned the government’s directive of social distancing at this critical time.
The mum-of-two held a birthday party for her hubby, Abdulrasheed Bello aka JJC Skillz at their Lagos home, having in attendance a number of people that clearly flouted the safety instructions the government has put in place at this delicate time.
Now, actress and mum-of-two, Uche Elendu is calling on the authorities to release the actress saying her twin boys are in distress and are crying.
In a post shared on her Instagram page, she wrote:
