Popular Nollywood actor, Alexx Ekubo, recently came under fire on social media for what seemed to be a harmless joke.
The thespian had taken to his Instagram page on Friday, ahead of Saturday’s governorship and house of assembly elections, to share an hilarious video of a man displaying his flexibility, and in his caption, he made reference to colleague Chioma Akpotha’s ordeal during the presidential election in February.
You will recall that Chioma Akpotha, during the presidential election on February 25, 2023, cried out online after she and other voters got attacked by thugs at their polling unit. ICYMI.
Sharing the funny video, Alexx stated that that’s how he’s preparing to defend Jandor/Funke Akindele’s votes in Lagos on Saturday. He then tagged Chioma in the post and made fun of her reaction to the attack on her polling unit during the presidential election.
“Nobody. Me: prepping to count & protect #JandorFunke votes tomorrow. @chiomakpotha come & see how to defend votes here no be to put hand for face dey shout I was attacked, I can’t beeleeve this”, he captioned the post.
However, while Chioma just laughed off Alexx Ekubo’s comment and called him a ‘native goat’, some netizens who didn’t find the statement funny lambasted him over the post.
