Nollywood star Alexx Ekubo received criticism on social media recently for a joke that appeared harmless.

Prior to the governorship and house of assembly elections on Saturday, he shared a humorous video on his Instagram page featuring a flexible man, and referenced colleague Chioma Akpotha’s experience during the presidential election in February.

During that election, Chioma and other voters were attacked by thugs at their polling unit.

Ekubo’s caption jokingly referred to his own preparations to defend Jandor/Funke Akindele’s votes in Lagos and tagged Chioma Akpotha, poking fun at her reaction to the attack.
