She said Naira Marley and other guests had been at her residence before the lockdown was enacted
Funke Akindele was arrested by the officers of the Nigeria Police Force, Lagos State Command, for hosting a house party that contravened the lockdown order of the government.
In the video, Akindele apologised to her fans for not leading by example amid the COVID-19 stay-at-home order of the government.
She said, “I have seen all the messages on Social Media. I will not intentionally mislead people.
“It was my husband’s birthday (on Saturday). Both of us run a studio which is located in Amen Estate where we live.
“When the pandemic started, we stopped all productions including our new projects.
“But before the lockdown was announced by our President, some youths have been in the boot camp here in Amen Estate – majority of the youths were those you saw in the video.
“Naira Marley came in here before the lockdown. And when the lockdown was announced, he said he would love to stay back, saying he loves this environment.
“I said okay fine. Then my husband’s birthday came up. And we all came together as a family.
