Bobrisky

Controversial cross-dresser Idris Okuneye, popularly known as Bobrisky, pleaded guilty on Friday to the allegation of abusing the Naira brought against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

However, the EFCC, through its counsel, Suleiman Suleiman, withdrew the two-count charge of laundering N180.7 million through his company, Bob Express, which had earlier been filed against him.

Counsel to the anti-graft agency, however, did not give any reason for the decision.

Following his plea, Justice Awogboro convicted the defendant on a four-count charge of tampering with the N490,000 by spraying.

Ten armed EFCC operatives surrounded Bobrisky, who wore a black gown and covered his head with a black veil, and prevented journalists from taking his pictures.
