Published

on

The socialite, Idris Okuneye, widely known as Bobrisky, has been sentenced to six months in jail without the option of a fine by Justice Abimbola Awogboro of the Federal High Court in Lagos. This comes after Bobrisky was recently arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for allegedly mutilating the naira. Bobrisky's arrest stemmed from accusations of spraying naira notes, prompting the EFCC to launch an investigation. Upon being summoned by the Commission, Bobrisky appeared at the Lagos Zonal Command of the EFCC for questioning and provided her statements. Subsequently, the EFCC filed two counts of money laundering charges against Bobrisky, but the court dismissed these charges. The verdict has sparked mixed reactions among Nigerians, with some deeming the sentence too severe for the act of spraying naira notes. One individual expressed the sentiment that Bobrisky was unfairly targeted, while another emphasized that many individuals engage in similar behavior at events without facing such repercussions.
