Posted by Thandiubani on Mon 08th Apr, 2024 - tori.ng

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.

 
There are reports that controversial crossdresser, Okuneye Idris, aka Bobrisky may not be released before the Eid-il-Fitri break.
 
This means he's likely to spend the holiday in detention.
 
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.
 
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 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.
 
“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.
 
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.
