Funke Akindele-Bello, Nigerian actress, has come under intense criticism on social media platforms for throwing a house party in Lagos amid the ongoing lockdown in the state due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

President Muhammadu Buhari had ordered a 14-day lockdown in Lagos, Ogun and Abuja so as to prevent the spread of the killer disease.

The Lagos state government had also placed a ban on large gatherings.

But on Saturday, the film star organized a house party to celebrate the birthday of Abdulrasheed Bello, her husband, at their residence in Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos.

In attendance were the likes of Naira Marley, Eniola Badmus among others.
