Bobrisky’s real offence couldn’t have been spraying Naira at party — Sowore

Bobrisky

Presidential candidate of the African Action Congress in the 2023 general elections, Omoyele Sowore said spraying of the Naira notes could not have been the offence of controversial transgender, Idris Okuneye, a.k.a Bobrisky.

Sowore stated this in a statement via his Facebook page on Friday.

Recall that Bobrisky was handed six-month jail term over mutilation of the Naira currency by a Federal High Court in Lagos on Friday.

Reacting to the development, Sowore said the energy exerted into the prosecution and jailing of Bobrisky by EFCC, showed that his real offence could not have been spraying Naira at a party.

He said the “real destroyers of the nation’s economy and currency” were yet to be jailed for their crimes 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.
