I don’t buy what they’re selling about Bobrisky’s real offence – Sowore

Omoyele Sowore, the African Action Congress’s presidential candidate for the general elections of 2023, stated that the controversial transgender person, Idris Okuneye, also known as Bobrisky, could not have committed the crime of spraying Naira notes.

This was said by Sowore in a statement posted on his Facebook page on Friday.

Recall that a Federal High Court in Lagos on Friday sentenced Bobrisky to six months in prison for mutilating Naira cash.

In response to the news, Sowore stated that the effort put forward by the EFCC to prosecute and imprison Bobrisky demonstrated that his actual crime could not have been splattering Naira at a gathering.

He declared that those who truly undermined the country’s economy and currency had not yet been imprisoned for their transgressions against Nigeria.

The activist said it’s left to be seen how the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC will handle the cases involving ‘real financial criminals’ being prosecuted since 2007.

Sowore stated, “The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission is gleefully announcing that Bobrisky has been jailed for six months without an option of a fine for “mutilating” the Nigerian currency, the Naira.

“The real people destroying the economy are yet to be jailed for the massive economic damage they did to ruin Nigeria.

“The energy put into prosecuting and jailing a crossdresser, Bobrisky, shows his real offence could not have been spraying Naira at a party.

“Let’s see how the EFCC handles cases involving real financial criminals, a long list being prosecuted since 2007-who destroyed the naira in the near future. #RevolutionNow,” he said.
