Dettol Nigeria has explained its business relationship with arrested Nollywood star, Funke Akindele stressing that she is not an ambassador of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).
In a statement after the actress was arrested by the Lagos Police Command for having a party in her which contravened government orders, Dettol Nigeria said it does not condone any breach of COVID-19 guidelines.
“We have been made aware through social media that Funke Akindele recently, acting in her personal capacity, had a celebration which is against the caution to the public on social distancing during the covid-19 pandemic.
“The NCDC partnered with Dettol on a public service message to educate our communities about preventive measures against COVID-19.
“Funke is not a brand ambassador of the NCDC,” Dettol Nigeria said.
“As a responsible organization and brand Dettol does not condone any breach of the guidelines on COVID-19. As an organization we are concerned at the turn of events.
“We will continue to support NCDC and the Nigerian govt to fight COVID-19”.
