Bobrisky pleads guilty to naira abuse as EFCC withdraws money laundering charges

Cross-dresser, Mr. Idris Okuneye, aka, Bobrisky, on Friday [today] pleaded guilty to four counts of abuse of the naira preferred against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) at a Lagos court.

He was originally arraigned on six counts, but two of the charges were dropped following a discussion between the parties.

The EFCC had, on Thursday, filed six counts of money laundering and abuse of naira against him.

But before the charge was read to the defendant, the EFCC’s prosecution counsel, Suleiman Suleiman, prayed the court to strike out counts five and six (money laundering charges) and arraigned him on counts one to four.

Consequently, Justice Abimbola Awogboro struck out counts five and six.

Bobrisky was then arraigned on counts one to four, to which he pleaded guilty.

When he was asked if he understood the charges read to him, he said, ”Yes, I am guilty.”

Bobrisky had, around 11:50am, arrived at the Federal High Court in Lagos for his arraignment on money laundering and naira abuse allegations.
