The Lagos State Government, is to prosecute all those who attended Saturday’s birthday party hosted by Nollywood Star, Funke Akindele Bello, for her husband, Abdulrasheed Bello, aka JJC Skillz.

The State Attorney-General, Moyosore Onigbanjo, said on Monday, that they would be prosecuted for flouting the social distancing Regulations of the State

He made the disclosure in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, shortly after an Ikeja Chief Magistrates court convicted and sentenced Funke and her husband, for flouting the Regulations.

The Chief Magistrate, Yewande Aje-Afunwa, sentenced Funke and her husband to 14 days community service, each.

Aje-Afunwa also imposed a N100,000 fine on each of them, directing that they should be isolated for 14 days.

The Attorney-General said that efforts are being intensified to arrest all those who attended the party, which held at Amen Estate, in Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos.

According to him, all the attendees will be made to face the full wrath of the law.

“Once they are apprehended, they will face charges.

“Today, the State charged two people to court, for violating the Infection Disease Regulations of Lagos State Government.

“They pleaded guilty,  and the court has sentenced them to pay a fine of N100, 000 each, to observe community service for 14 days, and to be kept in isolation in a place to be decided by the Lagos State Ministry of Health”, he said.

Onigbajo noted that the movement restriction was put in place to protect the lives of the residents.

“Everybody is urged to familiarise themselves with this law, and to comply with it; otherwise, the long arm of government will reach out to them sooner than later.

“This sentence should serve as a deterrent to everybody, nobody is bigger than the law”, he stressed.

Aje-Afunwa while sentencing the couple, had ordered that they should provide the personal details of the attendees of the party.

“Each Defendant shall provide the names, addresses, and GSM numbers of every person who attended the party, within 24 hours”, she said.
