Controversial cross-dresser Idris Okuneye, also known as Bobrisky, has been taken into custody by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on charges of misusing naira, destroying currency, and abusing it.

Bobrisky, who has been embroiled in several controversies over the past few weeks, was arrested in Lagos on Wednesday night and has since been detained at the Lagos Command of the EFCC.

Confirming the development to our correspondent in a telephone interview on Thursday, the spokesperson for the EFCC, Dele Oyewale, noted that Bobrisky would be charged to court.

Oyewale said, “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 nara 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 definitely be charged to court soon.”
