Nigerian correctional service moves Bobrisky from Ikoyi to Kirikiri prison

Nigerian Correctional Service (NCS) has moved controversial cross-dresser, Idris Okuneye, famously known as Bobrisky, from the Ikoyi Correctional Center to the Kirikiri Prison.

This is contrary to reports that Bobrisky is still being held at the Ikoyi Correctional Centre.

According to a very reliable source who is an official of the Nigeria Correctional Service (NCS), the popular cross-dresser is presently held at the Kirikiri Prison and was discreetly transferred since last weekend to Kirikiri.

Explaining the decision, the source stated, “It is procedural that he is moved to Kirikiri since it is an expansive prison compared to what we have here.”

He added that due to security reasons, Okuneye was quietly moved to the facility where he will serve his term.

The source further emphasised that Okuneye was transferred quietly to ensure security, and he will serve his term at the facility.

It’s worth recalling that Justice Abimbola Awogboro of the Federal High Court in Lagos sentenced Bobrisky to six months imprisonment.

The judge highlighted that the verdict aims to deter others from abusing and defacing the naira.

Despite being identified as male based on his admission in court, Bobrisky’s gender or genital organs haven’t undergone any realignment, according to reports.

The source confirmed that the convict has been placed in the male cell alongside other inmates and will be treated as such during his incarceration.

Today's Quote

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
