JUST IN: Bobrisky likely to spend Eid-il-Fitri in custody

Controversial crossdresser, Okuneye Olarewaju Idris, popularly known as Bobrisky, is most likely to spend the Eid-il-Fitri break in custody.

The Nation reported 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 Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (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 further 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.

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.

It is observed that April 9 fixed for Bobrisky’s sentencing, clashed with the Eid-il-Fitri break, and the sitting may not hold except Justice Awogboro decides to sit today for the sentencing.

Consequently, the crossdresser may likely spend his holiday in custody.
