Bobrisky is in shared cell with other inmates, not VIP apartment. He wears male-designated prison uniform — NCoS.




The Lagos State command of the Nigerian Correctional Service has made clarifications on the status of the controversial cross-dresser, Idris Okuneye, aka Bobrisky in its facility.

Bobrisky is currently serving a six-month prison sentence over ab¥se of the naira notes. A news platform had reported that the convict occupied a newly built VIP apartment in the Kirikiri correctional centre. Meanwhile, NCoS in a statement signed by its spokesperson, Rotimi Oladokun, on Saturday disproved the claims.

Oladokun noted that Bobrisky shared the same cell with other convicted inmates, adding that there were no en-suite or “one-bedroom flat” style cells in the Custodial Centre. The spokesman revealed that cell block infrastructure in the facility was built as shared buildings to accommodate multiple inmates.
