Bobrisky Awaits Court Sentence On April 9 ,Convicts For Abuse of Naira Note

Controversial cross-dresser and social media celebrity, Idris Okuneye, popularly known as Bobrisky will be awaiting his sentence on 9th of April,2024 after being convicted by Federal High Court in Lagos for abuse of Naira note 

Justice Abimbola Awogboro reserved the date for his judgment after Bobrisky pleaded guilty to a four-count charge of Naira abuse brought against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The judge ordered that the convict be remanded in EFCC custody pending sentence.

The court called the case at exactly 11:55am with Mr. Sulaiman Sulaiman announcing appearing for the EFCC while Mr. Ayo Olumofin represented the defendant.

Justice Awogboro then directed Bobrisky to unveil his face which was covered with a black hijab. He complied.

The EFCC had filed a 6 count charge against Bobrisky, including first 4 counts of the charge which bordered on abuse of the Naira while the last two counts border on alleged money laundering.

 EFCC prosecutor, Sulaiman had  asked the court to strike out counts five and six, before  the charge was read to the defendant 

 “We have an agreement with the defendant which will lead us to withdraw counts 5 and 6. In the circumstance, we’re humbly urging the court to strike out counts 5 and 6, leaving counts 1 to 4 alive”, the anti-graft agency told the court
