The Operatives of the Lagos Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have commenced an investigation into the alleged illegal spraying of Naira notes by Idris Okuneye, popularly known as Bobrisky. The controversial cross-dresser, aged 31, was invited by the EFCC following a video report showing him flaunting a substantial amount of Naira notes at a movie premiere.

Idris Okuneye, or Bobrisky as he is commonly referred to, is accused of recklessly spraying Naira notes at the premiere of a movie titled “Ajakaju,” which was produced by prominent Nollywood actress and producer, Eniola Ajao. The event took place at the Film One Circle Mall in Lekki, Lagos on March 24, 2024. The EFCC investigation has also uncovered evidence suggesting that Bobrisky had committed similar offenses at other event centers and parties on multiple occasions.

Responding to the invitation from the EFCC, Bobrisky appeared at the Lagos Zonal Command on the morning of Wednesday, April 4, 2024, for questioning. During the interrogation, the cross-dresser voluntarily provided statements relating to the allegations made against him. However, it is anticipated that he may face charges and be taken to court following his arrest.

The EFCC’s probe into Bobrisky’s alleged Naira abuse serves as a crucial reminder of the importance of upholding the integrity of Nigeria’s currency. As part of its mission to combat financial crimes and corruption, the EFCC has the responsibility to investigate individuals suspected of engaging in illegal activities, irrespective of their public profile.
