A top officer of the Nigerian Correctional Services, NCoS, has revealved that controversial crossdresser, Idris Okuneye, better known as Bobrisky, who was handed a six-month prison sentence over naira abuse, has no realignment of gender or genital organs as his male genital organs remains intact.

Bobrisky is said to currently share the same cell with male inmates after Justice Abimbola Awogboro of the Federal High Court in Lagos, convicted him  on Friday, April 12, 2024. 

The judgment was said to be a deterrent to others who are found abusing and mutilating the naira.

Bobrisky was examined at the point of admission into custody and the outcome of the examination revealed that the convict had no realignment of gender or genital organs.

“Bobrisky made a public declaration that he was a male and court proceedings are public records. Every inmate brought into a facility during admission is examined.  He was equally examined and no realignment of gender or genital organ was discovered. The male biological features were the same,” an official quoted by The Punch said.

“After that, a cell was allocated to him, and he had a certain number of inmates with him. A bed space was also allotted to him. It is just like a boarding house where your housemaster will issue you your personal belongings.

“When it is time for class, he attends. When it is time for food, he will go and get his portion. The same goes with prep and light out. He observes all these without preference. He has been going about his business just like other inmates since he was brought in here.”

While making a clarification on the claims that Bobrisky was being protected against abuse, the official noted that the facility frowned against any form of abuse by a fellow inmate.

“He is not getting any five-star treatment and is not being protected from anybody. He follows the same rules and regulations just like every other inmate. Single cells of isolation cells are to prevent outbreaks of communicable diseases. In a male prison, homosexuality is outlawed and it is a grievous offence. Sodomy or homosexuality, is frowned upon here in the custodial centre. So any inmate that tries to violate him will face the law.”
