Naira Abuse - Bobrisky Sentenced To Six Months Imprisonment

Idris Okuneye, popularly known as Bobrisky, has been sentenced to six months in jail without the option of a fine.

Justice Abimbola Awogboro of the Federal High Court in Lagos sentenced the controversial cross-dresser for Naira abuse, on Friday.

Mr Awogboro, in his ruling, said Bobrisky’s sentence would serve as a lesson for others from abusing the Naira.

He held that “The act of mutilating the Naira notes has become a menace, which has continued to damage the country’s image.

“Enough of people mutilating and tampering with our currencies. It has to stop. His will serve as a deterrent to others.”

Before the judge sentenced Bobrisky, he inquired about the crossdresser’s gender, to which he responded that he was identified as a man.

Bobrisky’s jail term commenced on 24 March, the same day as his arrest. The crossdresser will serve his jail term at the Ikoyi Correctional Centre.
