Controversial social media influencer and crossdresser, Okuneye Idris, popularly known as Bobrisky, could find himself spending the upcoming Eid-il-Fitri holiday behind bars.

The development comes after his conviction on Friday by a Federal High Court in Lagos for charges related to Naira abuse, as filed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Bobrisky, who pleaded guilty to the charges, expressed remorse and sought leniency from the court. He promised to educate his vast social media following on the laws regarding Naira abuse, stating, “I am a social media influencer with over five million followers. I would do a video on my page, and I would educate people about spraying money. I will not repeat it, My Lord. I regret my actions, My Lord. I am a first-time offender.”

Despite his plea, Justice Abimbola Awogboro ordered his detention until sentencing, scheduled for April 9, 2024. However, with the Federal Government declaring April 9 and 10 as public holidays to mark the Eid-il-Fitri celebration, it raises questions about whether the sentencing will proceed as planned.

The news of Bobrisky’s potential detention during the festive period has sparked discussions among his followers and the public at large, with many expressing opinions on the appropriate punishment for his actions.

As the controversial figure awaits his fate, his case serves as a reminder of the importance of compliance with financial regulations and the consequences of disregarding them, regardless of one’s social status or online influence.
