Bobrisky pleads guilty to four count charges in Lagos Court



Bobrisky pleads guilty to fund misuse, money laundering charges in Lagos court

During the Friday court session, Bobrisky pleaded guilty to a four-count charge of abuse of the naira and money laundering.

Cross-dresser and LGBTQ activist Bobrisky, legally known as Idris Okuneye, appeared in a Lagos courtroom to face charges of fund misuse and money laundering brought by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The charges stemmed from a six-count complaint filed by the EFCC, although two counts were dropped following discussions between the involved parties.

Topnaija earlier revealed that Prosecutors accused Bobrisky of tampering with various sums of money during social events, including an incident where he allegedly sprayed N400,000 at a Lagos gathering, a violation of the Central Bank Act 2007.

Other allegations included tampering with N50,000 at Aja Junction, Ikorodu, and N20,000 at White Steve Event Hall in Ikeja. Additionally, he was accused of tampering with N20,000 at an event in Oniru, Victoria Island.

In addition to the charges related to fund misuse, Bobrisky faced accusations regarding his company, Bob Express. The EFCC alleged that he failed to submit declarations despite significant sums paid into the company’s account between September 1, 2021, and April 4, 2024.
