Bobrisky reveals next move after release from EFCC custody

Controversial crossdresser, Okuneye Idris aka Bobrisky, has revealed his next plan of action after his release from the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Recall that Bobrisky was arrested on April 3 and convicted by a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos on Friday, April 5, 2024, after pleading guilty to the charges of naira abuse levelled against him by the EFCC.

The EFCC filed a six-count against Bobrisky, with the first four counts related to Naira abuse and the last two counts concerning alleged money laundering.

Prior to reading the charges, the EFCC prosecutor requested the court to dismiss counts five and six.

Bobrisky pleaded guilty to the four-count charge of Naira abuse.

He, however, asked to be pardoned, adding that he was not aware of the laws binding the Naira abuse and vowed to educate his fans on social media about it.

“I am a social media influencer with over five million followers. I would do a video on my page, and I would educate people about spraying money. I will not repeat it, My Lord. I regret my actions, My Lord. I am a first-time offender,” he said.

Subsequently, Justice Abimbola Awogboro scheduled April 9, 2024, for his sentencing and ordered that he be held in EFCC custody until then.

However, there are strong indications that the controversial social media influencer may spend the Eid-el-fitr in detention.

This is as the Federal Government has declared Tuesday and Wednesday, April 9 and 10, 2024, as public holidays to mark the Eid-el-Fitr celebration.
