He was picked up, last night, at his residence inside Bera Estate, Chevron Drive, #Lekki and whisked away to an unknown destination. . . According to reports, the officers who arrested him, brought him back this morning to move all his cars. . . It was gathered that his arrest is linked to his “cross-dressing” activities, although this hasn’t been verified. One of the officers was also quoted as saying “we will turn him back to a guy.”
Though Bobrisky has reportedly been released by the policemen who allegedly refused to return the cars seized from his residence; Nigerians are now questioning the law enforcement agency’s obsession with the maverick cross-dresser.
The controversial cross-dresser who gained notoriety due to his effeminate lifestyle has been dubbed one of the most popular celebrities in recent years.
In August 2019, 1st News reported that over a hundred policemen invaded his birthday party. His 28th birthday was disrupted and he was tagged a ‘national embarrassment’ by Olusegun Runsewe, Director-General, National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC).
During an interview session, Runsewe advised Nigerian youths to stop imitating the cross-dresser. As a matter of fact, Runsewe claimed Bobrisky can destroy their future.
He said, “Bobrisky is a national disaster, an embarrassment to the country, engaging in cultural corruption as a cross-dresser.
“We have to start to curtail his activities before it gets out of hand.
”Also, we will not allow this transvestite to destroy the future of our youths and the unborn Nigerians.”
