The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has filed a six-count charge against transvestite cross-dresser Idris Okuneye, popularly known as Bobrisky.
Newsmediang reports that the EFCC earlier on Thursday confirmed the arrest of Bobrisky over abuse of the Naira, spraying of notes, and currency mutilation.
The crossdresser, who was arrested at Pinnock Estate, Lagos, is currently being detained at the Lagos State Command of the anti-corruption agency.

In a new development, EFCC stated that Bobrisky will be arraigned on Friday on a six-count charge before Justice Abimbola Awogboro of the Federal High Court, Lagos.

The first four counts of the charges revolve around the abuse of Naira, while the other two relate to money laundering.
The sheet filed by EFCC Prosecutor, Senior Advocate of Nigeria Rotimi Oyedepo, alongside seven others, revealed that the first count alleged that Bobrisky tampered with the sum of N400,000 by spraying it while dancing at a social event at the IMAX Circle Mall, Lekki, Lagos.

The offence, contrary to and punishable under Section 21(1) of the Central Bank Act 2007, was committed on March 24, 2024.
Count two alleges that between July and August 2023 at Aja Junction, Ikorodu, Bobrisky tampered with N50,000 by spraying it at a social event while dancing.
In count three, Bobrisky is accused of spraying and tampering with another sum of N20,000 while dancing at White Steve Event Hall, Ikeja, in December 2023.
Count four further accuses Bobrisky of spraying and tampering with another sum of N20,000 while dancing at an Oniru, Victoria Island event.
Count five charges Bobrisky, trading as Bob Express between September 1, 2021, and April 4, 2024, in Lagos, with failure to submit a declaration of the company’s activities to the Special Control Unit Against Money Laundering. N127.7m was deposited into the company’s Ecobank account during this period.
Count six also accuses Bobrisky of failing to declare the company’s activities during the same period when another N53m was deposited into the company’s account, thereby violating the Money Laundering (Prevention and Prohibition) Act.
The charge sheet was filed by EFCC Prosecutor, Senior Advocate of Nigeria Rotimi Oyedepo, alongside seven other lawyers.
Meanwhile, The EFCC spokesperson, Dele Oyewale, said the crossdresser has been granted bail, but she has yet to meet the conditions.
“Yes. He has been granted administrative bail. Normally, when you take in a suspect lawfully, there are some thresholds as to the number of days he can be held in custody,” Oyewale said.
“So, we are only complying with the law. We have offered him administrative bail. He has not met the bail conditions. If he meets the bail conditions today, he will go home.”
