Crossdresser and LGBTQ activist, Bobrisky enters a rogue dance with Nigeria’s EFCC and it could get nasty as his true crimes are unearthed.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has initiated legal action against Idris Olanrewaju Okuneye, popularly known as Bobrisky, filing a six-count complaint against him.

Scheduled to appear before Justice Abimbola Awogboro of the Federal High Court in Lagos on Friday, April 5, Bobrisky faces allegations ranging from Naira misuse to suspected money laundering.

The first four counts of the complaint focus on instances of alleged Naira misuse, while the latter two pertain to suspected money laundering activities.

According to the charge sheet presented by EFCC Prosecutor Rotimi Oyedepo and seven other attorneys, Bobrisky stands accused of tampering with various sums of money during social events.

These include an incident where he allegedly sprayed N400,000 while dancing at a social gathering in Lagos on March 24, 2024, in violation of Section 21(1) of the Central Bank Act 2007.

The charges also detail instances where Bobrisky is accused of spraying and tampering with N50,000 at Aja Junction, Ikorodu, in July and August 2023, and an additional N20,000 at White Steve Event Hall in Ikeja in December 2023.

Another allegation involves him spraying and tampering with another sum of N20,000 at an event in Oniru, Victoria Island.

Furthermore, Bobrisky faces accusations related to his business activities. He is alleged to have failed to submit declarations of the activities of his company, Bob Express, to the Special Control Unit Against Money Laundering, despite significant sums totaling N127.7m and N53m being paid into the company’s account between September 1, 2021, and April 4, 2024.
