Bobrisky’s real offence may not be Naira mutilation – Sowore knocks EFCC


Presidential candidate of the African Action Congress in 2019 and 2023 general elections, Omoyele Sowore, has condemned the six-month jail term handed a controversial transgender, Idris Okuneye, a.k.a Bobrisky, over mutilation of the Naira currency by a Federal High Court in Lagos on Friday, saying real destroyers of the nation’s economy and currency were yet to be jailed for their crimes against Nigeria.

The activist, took to his Facebook page on Friday to say it’s left to be seen how EFCC will handle the cases involving ‘real financial criminals’ being prosecuted since 2007

Sowore pointed out that the energy exerted into the prosecution and jailing of Bobrisky by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, showed that his real offence could not have been spraying Naira at a party.

He wrote: “The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission is gleefully announcing that Bobrisky has been jailed for six months without an option of a fine for “mutilating” the Nigerian currency, the Naira.

“The real people destroying the economy, like former President Muhammadu Buhari, his former Attorney General, Abubakar Malami, SAN, his former personal secretary, Tunde Sabiu, and even the former Central Bank of Nigeria governor, @Godwin Emefiele (who was just now granted an N50M bail in Lagos for an offence involving N50 billion), are yet to be jailed for the massive economic damage they did to ruin Nigeria.


“The energy put into prosecuting and jailing a crossdresser, Bobrisky, shows his real offence could not have been spraying Naira at a party.

“Let’s see how the EFCC handles cases involving real financial criminals, a long list being prosecuted since 2007-who destroyed the naira in the near future. #RevolutionNow.”
