Popular cross-dresser, Idris Okuneye alias Bobrisky, has been arrested by operatives of the Inspector General Police (IG) Monitoring Unit.
Naija News learned that Bobrisky was arrested around Lekki by a team of policemen from Abuja, Nigeria’s capital, over alleged money issues with another female.
Bobrisky’s arrest is coming months after he was detained by the police over a disagreement with an Abuja-based public official.
Although details of the present case were still sketchy at the time of this report, a report monitored on The Nation newspaper by Naija News, says the policemen who entered Bobrisky’s white Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) had made their mission known to the Lagos State Police Command before proceeding.
The report said the controversial crossdresser who recently had an altercation with a Nigerian woman in diaspora over sales and sponsorship for artificial eyelash brand, was taken to a police station on the island where he was allegedly detained for a while and later granted bail.
Confirming his arrest, DCP Frank Mba, the police spokesman said a woman petitioned the police alleging the crossdresser of N30m fraud.
“Yes, Bobrisky was arrested in the early hours of today following a petition by a Nigerian woman that the crossdresser collected N30m from her for sales but did not keep to the end of the deal.
“Bobrisky was granted bail but the case is still an active one. It is a case under investigation,” he confirmed.
