More details have emerged on the real reasons why Nigeria’s sensational cross-dresser, Idris Okuneye, aka Bobrisky, 23, was arrested by the Police.
The news of Bobrisky’s alleged arrest, with photos of someone purported to be the cross dresser, was the hot topic trending on various social media platform on Wednesday.
The reports said the alleged arrest of Bobrisky, who is also a Snap Chat freak, may be connected to his recent write up: “Yes (I’m) gay,” in an Instagram post, which he later deleted.
Meanwhile, some of the social media users have expressed divergent views on the news.
But Bobrisky himself has spoken out for the first time since he was arrested
Speaking to LIB exclusively, Bobrisky revealed that serial entrepreneur Toyin Lawani was the one who called for his arrest stating that she accused him of stealing his customers.
He revealed that the case was reported in Abuja and that he is currently on his way to Abuja to resolve the issue. He said;
”Toyin Lawani asked her lawyer to write petitions against me that I worked for her and I’m selling cream to all her customers, which was a fat lie. I never worked for Toyin”.
”She was my friend. I can’t remember ever working for Toyin or learning how to make cream from her”.
”Then she also said I threatened her. So we are going to Abuja because that was where the case was reported. Before she wrote petitions against me, she had already threatened me that she is giving me 7 days to go to the internet and apologize to her which I said no way because she offended me. I think because I refused to apologize, she got the police involved”.
Speaking about what transpired at the police station yesterday, Bobrisky said his phones were taken from him and he was told that he needed to wait until morning in order to go to Abuja.
”Yesterday at the police station, I was sitting at the counter and I was told I needed to wait until morning to go to Abuja. My phone was taken from me so I couldn’t talk to anyone. I’m trying to get in touch with my lawyer and all the people I know”.
The cross dresser is known for his social media skills, most notably with the use of Snapchat, a social media application.
He finished his secondary school education from King’s College, Lagos.
He also attended graduate school at the University of Lagos.
