A former Lagos gubernatorial candidate of the Action Democratic Party (ADP) in the 2019 poll, Babatunde Gbadamosi has apologised for being part of other people who attended the house party of Funke Akindele-Bello’s husband party amidst coronavirus pandemic.
The Nollywood actress has been a talking point across the social media for the past 24 hours with people bashing her for not following the guideline. Her claim had been that those that came to celebrate with her husband are the ones living within Amen Estate where she resides.

The viral video has led to the arrest of the Nollywood producer while her husband, Abdul Rasheed Bello, popularly known as JJSkilss and others who were present at the party have been told to report themselves to the Police authority.
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.
