Popular Nigerian actor, Yul Edochie has taken to Twitter to call out youths who are protesting against controversial transvestite, Bobrisky.
On Thursday, September 19, 1st News reported that a coterie of livid Nigerians took to the street of Abuja to protest against crossdresser, Bobrisky real name Idris Okuneye.
According to the protesters, Bobrisky is a clog in the moral development of the country. They claimed he is a nefarious image that is berating the values and culture of Nigeria.
The National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN) and the National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC) have advised the controversial transgender personality to stop promoting Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) lifestyle or vacate Nigeria.
Muktar Jebba described the cross dresser’s persona as ungodly and immoral. Equally important, Jebba is the vice president of the NYCN (Northern Youth Central Zone).
“Consequently, the NYCN today, September 18, 2019, declares Bobrisky as persona non grata. As he is a man (not a woman). For national interest, we call on the ever-conscious, ever-ready, combatant Nigerian youths and comrades of like minds to, without fear or favour.
“Kick out Bobrisky and his likes wherever they come across them. Nigeria is not a place for LGBT and we shall fight this to the end.”

Yul Edochie comes hard on Nigerian youths
The protest has been dubbed a misplaced priority by numerous Nigerians. Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie has also delved in to criticize the demonstration that took place this past week.

And some youths actually took time to stage a protest against Bobrisky? Excuse me?? You guys saw nothing else to protest about?”
