Former Lagos Governorship aspirant, Babatunde Gbadamosi has apologized after partying with the Bello’s at their residence in Amen Estate amidst the coronavirus outbreak.
It had reported that Nigerians on the social media had called on the Lagos State government to, with immediate effect, arrest popular Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele and her husband, Abdul Rasheed Bello, for disobeying both the State and the Federal government orders on Saturday by hosting an in house party in celebration of JJC Skillz’s birthday.
Reacting, the Lagos State Police Command, on Sunday night arrested the popular movie star. The Force said its attention was drawn to a viral video showing a large number of persons mainly in the entertainment industry in an Estate, along Ajah, Ibeju-Lekki axis, Lagos.
Gbadamosi, who was equally seen partying with the family, took to his Twitter account to upload a video, stating that he thought he was just going to see the Bello’s alone.
He said, ”Hello everyone my name is Babatunde Gbadamosi and I am making this video to apologize for the event that happened at the Bello’s residence yesterday at Amen estate.
”We went to visit Mr and Mrs Bello to celebrate Mr Bello’s birthday with him and we believed we were the only ones going to meet with the family and the staff at their home and that is exactly what happened.
”After we arrived, at about an hour or so, a celebrity came and he had about a number of people with him.
”At that point, I think perhaps we should have left. I consider that as a lapse of judgement on my own part and I apologize for it.
”That doesn’t mean that I distract policies that have been put out by health care authorities around the world.
”I subscribe fully to it and I ask you all to please keep observing social distancing as a means of preventing coronavirus from spreading around Nigeria.
”Do note please that everybody at that gathering is a resident of Gbadamosi close, not just of Amen estate.
”Once again I sincerely apologize for what happened and thank you all for your patience, concern and also for the messages.
”We are all safe and will continue to be safe in the mighty name of Jesus amen.”
