Bobrisky May Spend Eid-il-fitri Holiday in Detention
Rumors coming in says that controversial crossdresser, Okuneye Idris, aka Bobrisky may not be released before the Eid-il-Fitri break.
The report claims that the crossdresser is likely going to spend the holiday in custody.
TopNaija gathered that Bobrisky was arrested on April 3 and convicted by a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos on Friday, April 5, 2024. He pleaded guilty to the charges of naira abuse levelled against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
The EFCC has filed a six-count charge against Bobrisky. The first four counts pertain to the abuse of Naira, while the last two counts involve allegations of money laundering.
In a recent court hearing, the EFCC prosecutor made a request to dismiss counts five and six before proceeding with reading the charges.
Bobrisky has admitted his guilt in the case involving four counts of Naira abuse.
Bobrisky in question humbly requested for forgiveness, expressing his lack of knowledge regarding the regulations surrounding the misuse of the Naira. He also made a commitment to use his social media platform to educate his followers on this matter.
“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.
In a recent development, Justice Abimbola Awogboro has set a date for the sentencing of the individual in question. The sentencing is scheduled to take place on April 9, 2024. As part of the order, the individual will be held in EFCC custody until the sentencing date.
In a recent announcement, the Federal Government has officially declared April 9 and 10, 2024, as public holidays to commemorate the Eid-el-Fitr celebration.
In a statement released by the permanent secretary of the Ministry of Interior, Aishetu Ndayako, the Minister of Interior, Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, revealed this information.
According to investigation, it has been discovered that the scheduled sentencing of Bobrisky on April 9 coincides with the Eid-il-Fitri break. As a result, it is uncertain whether the court session will take place unless Justice Awogboro decides to hold the sentencing today.
The controversial crossdresser is expected to spend the upcoming holiday season behind bars.
Subsequently, Justice Abimbola Awogboro scheduled April 9, 2024, for his sentencing and ordered that he be held in EFCC custody until then.
However, on Sunday, the Federal Government declared Tuesday and Wednesday, April 9 and 10, 2024, as public holidays to mark the Eid-el-Fitr celebration.
The Minister of Interior, Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, disclosed this in a statement by the ministry’s permanent secretary, Aishetu Ndayako.
Checks by our correspondent revealed that April 9 fixed for Bobrisky’s sentencing clashed with the Eid-il-Fitri break, and the sitting may not hold except Justice Awogboro decided to sit today for the sentencing.
The controversial crossdresser will likely spend his holiday in detention.
