Court sentences Bobrisky to 6 months imprisonment with no fine

A Federal High Court in Lagos State has jailed cross-dresser Idris Okuneye, better known as Bobrisky, with no option of fine.

Justice Abimbola Awogboro handed down a six-month sentence to Okuneye, who has been in detention since his arrest last week.

Recall that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had arraigned the cross dresser on a six-count charge, including the mutilation of naira.
