Reno Omokri reveals why bobrisky was jailed

Reno Omokri, a Nigerian socio-political analyst, has stirred up debate with his recent assertions regarding the government’s undisclosed reasons for locking up well-known transvestite Bobrisky.

The former presidential assistant said on social media that Bobrisky’s sentence was imposed by the government as a means of stifling the burgeoning cross-dressing scene in Nigeria.

Reno Omokri said that Bobrisky’s arrest was staged by the Nigerian government under the pretense of Naira abuse accusations in a statement he released on his social media page.

He claimed that the government purposefully used this pretext to suppress the increasingly popular cross-dressing trend while avoiding a frontal confrontation that may provoke retaliation from Western nations.

According to him;

What happened with Bobrisky just shows you the savviness of Nigeria compared to other nations and the intellectual response to governing on display by the current administration.

The Nigerian government obviously wanted to clamp down on the trending cross-dressing culture in Nigeria. But the government was also aware of the fact that any direct move in that regard would earn it the whip of the Western powers.


“The Tinubu administration was in a dilemma. How to deal with Bobrisky for being a cross-dresser but not to make it about his being a cross-dresser. And this is where you have to respect the subtlety of the Tinubu administration. They found a creative genius way.


“Bobrisky violated a law against the abuse of the Naira. That is why a first-time offender committed an offence that even government officials engaged in during Buhari’s son’s wedding, and, despite pleading guilty, was sentenced to six months in prison.


“In fact, there is more video evidence of Naira abuse via spraying at the wedding of no less a person than Abdul Aziz Malami, the son of Abubakar Malami, SAN, Nigeria’s Former Attorney-General and Minister of Justice. And the scapegoating of Bobrisky has worked. Since his arrest, have you seen any of his ‘colleagues’ prancing about?


“We used to see them almost daily on blogs and social media. The traditional media, too, could not have enough of them. They got the memo. They have run for cover since the Chairwoman answered to the gender of male in court when asked to state ‘her’ gender.”
