Court Strikes Out Money Laundering Charges Against Nigerian Crossdresser


Justice Abimbola Awogboro of the Federal High Court in Lagos on Friday afternoon struck out the money laundering allegations (counts five and six) levelled against controversial cross-dresser, Idris Okuneye, known as Bobrisky.

Bobrisky appeared before the court on a six-count charge brought against him by EFCC bothering on naira abuse and other offences.

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 arraign him on counts one to four.

Consequently, Justice Awogboro struck out counts five and six.
