News about Bobrisky’s arrest filtered in early Friday morning. According to a news outlet, Instablog9ja, Bobrisky was arrested and later brought back to his house to enable officers impound all his vehicles.
Politics Nigeria was reliably informed that the effeminate internet sensation was arrested at his residence in Bera Estate, Chevron Drive, Lekki Phase 1 on January 23rd. This is not his first run-in with the law as he has been arrested before over his “cross-dressing” activities which has drawn severe criticisms from Authorities.
