Bobrisky remains in EFCC custody as he fails to meet bail conditions




Nigerian cross-dresser Idris Olarewaju, popularly called Bobrisky, has failed to meet the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission’s bail conditions.

Bobrisky was arrested and detained by the EFCC’s Lagos State Command on Wednesday for alleged naira misuse, naira note spraying, and currency mutilation.

Dele Oyewale, the EFCC’s spokesperson, confirmed the story of his bail and failure to follow the conditions in a phone chat with our correspondent on Thursday evening.

Oyewale said, “he has been granted administrative bail but have yet to meet bail conditions.”

Earlier, Oyewale had noted that “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.

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

In a statement titled “EFCC Grills Bobrisky for Naira Abuse,” posted on its social media handle later, the EFCC wrote, “Operatives of the Lagos Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, have commenced investigation of Idris Okuneye, a.k.a.
