The past week has been filled with the report of Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele and her husband, Abdulrasheed Bello’s arrest and arraignment.

The couple had been arrested after holding a birthday house party at their residence in Amen estate and the occasion had over 20 people in attendance like the law requires.

They were arraigned and the couple pleaded guilty. They were also fined the sum of N100,000 each and sentenced to 14 days of community service.

Speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria, some senior advocate of nigeria (SAN) said that the couple are ex-convicts given the situation surrounding the issue.

According to reports , Mr Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, SAN, said:

“There is no doubt that they are ex-convicts. This is because before the judge passed the sentence, they would have pleaded guilty, and trial would have taken place before judgment. So, as far as the law is concerned presently, they are ex-convicts”.

Mr Ahmed Raji, SAN, also said the same thing in other words. He said:

“Akindele and her husband, AbdulRasheed Bello, can be referred to as ex-convicts having pleaded guilty and were sentenced for violating restrictions order in Lagos.Technically speaking, anybody who has gone through a trial and is convicted can be referred to as an ex-convict.”

Bruno Fernandes’s penalty hands United a first home win in a match of two penalties

Published

on

By

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer concedes his side were ‘lucky’ that West Brom had a penalty decision overturned in their 1-0 win at Old Trafford.

 

After a goalless first 45 minutes, Slaven Bilic’s side were awarded a spot-kick early in the second half after referee David Coote ruled that Bruno Fernandes had fouled Conor Gallagher in the box.

 

VAR however intervened with the decision eventually changed after Coote reviewed the incident on the sideline. Replays suggested Fernandes did make some contact with the ball before the man.

 

The Red Devils made the most of the call and were themselves awarded a penalty 10 minutes later which Fernandes tucked away at the second time of asking after his first attempt was saved only for goalkeeper Sam Johnstone to be caught coming of his line.

 

Solskjaer, referencing Aston Villa’s similarly overturned last-minute spot-kick in their 2-1 home defeat to Brighton earlier on Saturday, told BT Sport he thought both penalties should have been awarded.

 

He said: “I looked at the penalty this afternoon at Villa-Brighton, and there’s contact on the ball and the man. In my head, it might be a penalty, and there as well.

 

With this victory, United see themselves in the top half of the table for the first time this seasin with 13 points from 9 games at 8th position.

 

While for West Brom, they remain in the bottom three with only 3 points.

 

United will host Istanbul Basaksehir midweek, while also to play away to Southampton on Sunday.
