Bobrisky Sentenced to Six Months in Prison

A Federal High Court in Lagos, Nigeria, has sentenced controversial cross-dresser and social media celebrity Idris Okuneye, popularly known as Bobrisky, to six months imprisonment.

Justice Abimbola Awogboro handed down the six-month sentence without the option of a fine.

The controversial celebrity has been in the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, since his arrest last week.

He was arrested by the EFCC for abusing the local currency.
