Controversial Nollywood actress Uche Elendu has called on Lagos State government to release Funke Akindele-Bello from detention.
On Sunday, April 5, 2020, actress Funke Akindele was arrested by men of the Nigerian Police Force after throwing a birthday party in violation of government coronavirus lockdown orders.
In a recent development, Nollywood actress Uche Elendu has pleaded to the authority on social media for the release of her colleague.
The movie star took to her Instagram page today being Monday, April 6, 2020, where she appealed to the government on behalf of the mother of many.
In her plea, Uche acknowledged the wrongdoings of her colleague. However, the outspoken actress pointed out that she has since apologized and should be forgiven.
“Please release her 😢 i dont have any excuses to make for her cos the law is simple, No Social gathering !!!! but her humble and sweet spirit doesnt deserve this arrest…We are Sorry on her behalf please,” she wrote.
She went on to reiterate that part of the reason why Mrs. Akindele should be pardoned is that she can return to her twin babies who have been crying for the attention of their mother.
“She explained and apologised please listen and forgive, at least people ate food at the party, the people that clustered people to share 2 packs of indomie in the name of Quarantine relief were not arrested, Please Forgive her #freefunkeakindele,” she added.
