The court has set April 9 for Bobrisky’s sentencing.


Crossdresser Idris Okuneye, also known as Bobrisky, was slated to be sentenced on April 9 by a Federal High Court in Lagos on Friday, April 5.

The contentious transvestite was found guilty of misusing Naira.

After the defendant entered a guilty plea to the charge brought against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), trial judge Justice Abimbola Awogboro found him guilty.

The convict was ordered to be held in the custody of the EFCC, and the court postponed sentencing until April 9.

Bobrisky was scheduled on Friday, even though the EFCC had filed a six-count charge against him on Thursday.

The allegation states that money laundering counts five and six, while suspected tampering with Naira notes counts one to four borders.

Upon calling the case, Mr. Suleiman Suleiman, the prosecutor, informed the court that the defendant had consented to enter a guilty plea to the charge after some negotiation.

Orally, he moved to strike out counts five and six, leaving only numbers one through four.

As a result, the court rejected counts five and six.

The defendant entered a guilty plea when the remaining counts were read to him.
