She and her husband were arrested and sentenced to 14 days community service by Lagos Court.
Naira Marley and others were also arrested in connection to the said birthday party.
Recall also that a Mosque in Agege Lagos conducted service for Muslim faithfuls and according to the story Lagos task force were attacked by people who came for the prayers.
Recall also that Bishop Oyedepo too was caught doing Sunday service during the lock down order.

Sarah Ola wrote, “She will definitely get through this soon but I really wished Nigerians used the same energy on Bishop Oyedepo probably that will be fair enough.”
Folawizzy wrote, “So now that they’ve arrested #funkeakindele after all her explanations, I hope you people are happy, but when your daddy in the lord, #Oyedepo mobilized a huge crowd of people at Canaan for so called religious activities, in flagrant disobedience of the directives nothing happened.”
A’wale Babatunde wrote, “It’s not hate. If you’ve noticed the Lagos state govt is very proactive, sadly there wasn’t a video for Tinubu’s party, these ones displayed their foolishness publicly. As for Oyedepo, his matter is with Ogun state govt as that’s where his church is, wonder why they let it slide.”
