“I will not repeat it again” -Bobrisky begs as court convicts him for abusing Naira



The Federal High Court in Lagos has convicted controversial cross-dresser, Idris Okuneye, popularly known as Bobrisky for abusing the Naira.

Justice Abimbola Awogboro convicted him after the review of the facts of the case on Friday,

In his allocution, Bobrisky told the court that he was not aware of the law on abusing the naira.

He said that he is a social media influencer with over five million followers.

The judge then told him that ignorance of the law was not an excuse.

He said, “I know, My Lord. My Lord, I wish that you could give me a second chance to use my platform to inform and educate my followers about spraying money.

“I would do a video on my page and I will educate people about spraying money. I will not repeat it again. I regret my actions.”

Earlier, Bobrisky was arraigned on four counts of naira abuse preferred against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

He was originally arraigned on a six-count charge, but two charges were dropped following a discussion between the parties.

The EFCC on Thursday filed a six-count charge against Bobrisky at the Lagos Division of the Federal High Court over alleged money laundering and mutilation of the naira.

Bobrisky was arrested by the anti-graft agency in connection with the offence.

The cross-dresser who refers to himself as “Mummy of Lagos” pleaded guilty to the charges.
