The Nigeria Police Force says it granted cross-dresser, Idris Okuneye, popularly known as Bobrisky, bail because it is “mindful of the people” it takes into custody.
It would be recalled that Bobrisky was arrested in the early hours of yesterday
over a business deal that seems to have gone wrong.
Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba has now revealed the main reason why the
controversial male barbie was released on bail.
Frank Mba, told PUNCH Metro that Bobrisky was arrested in connection to a
N30m fraud, adding that the matter was under investigation.
“He (Bobrisky) was arrested, but he has been granted bail; he is no longer in our
custody but he is still under investigation.
He was arrested on the allegation by a businesswoman that he fraudulently
collected N30m from her.
“We had to grant him bail because of the lockdown and we are also mindful of the
people we take into custody but the case is still under investigation.”
According to reports, the yet-to-be-identified businesswoman had petitioned
the police over the matter.
Bobrisky in the early hours of today have reacted to the news by noting that he does
not get himself involved in business that has to do with a small amount of money like 30 million naira.
Fingers are crossed on whether the businesswoman will press charges against the cross-dresser or they will settle out of court.
