EFCC apprehends Bobrisky for alleged Naira mutilation. Stay updated on this developing story.

Nigeria’s Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested renowned social media personality and controversial cross-dresser, Idris Okuneye, widely known as Bobrisky.

The arrest, which took place in Lagos on Wednesday night, comes in the wake of allegations surrounding the abuse of the Nigerian currency, the naira.

The crossdresser was captured on video spraying wads of Naira at the premiere of Eniola Ajao’s ‘Beasts of Two Worlds’ movie on March 24, 2024.

Premium Times Nigeria also reported that the EFCC’s further investigation showed that Bobrisky had committed the alleged offence at other event centres and parties at different times.

In the West African country’s laws, a person who tampers with the Naira note or coin is guilty of an offence, punishable by law.

According to Dele Oyewale, the spokesperson for the EFCC, Bobrisky’s detention is connected to accusations of naira abuse, including the spraying and mutilation of naira notes.

Confirming the arrest, Oyewale emphasised the seriousness with which the EFCC views the integrity of the national currency.

“Bobrisky is with us. He was arrested last night in Lagos, and he is at our Lagos command. We arrested him for alleged abuse of naira notes, spraying of naira notes, and currency mutilation, among others,” stated Oyewale.

“We are very serious about restoring the dignity of the naira. Though our investigation is still ongoing, but he will definitely be charged to court soon,” Mr Oyewale added.

While the investigation into the matter is ongoing, the EFCC has indicated that Bobrisky will face charges in court in due course.
