Bobrisky Not Staying In One Bedroom Flat – NCoS. The Lagos State Command of the Nigerian Correctional Service (NCoS) has clarified the conditions under which Idris Okuneye, popularly known as Bobrisky, is being held.

Bobrisky, a well-known cross-dresser, is currently serving a six-month prison sentence for abusing naira notes, as pronounced by Justice Abimbola Awogboro of the Federal High Court in Lagos on April 12, 2024.

Recent rumors circulating online suggesting that Bobrisky was residing in a VIP apartment within the Kirikiri correctional facility has been firmly refuted by the NCoS.

In a statement released on Saturday, the spokesperson for the Lagos State Command, Rotimi Oladokun, clarified that Bobrisky is not receiving any special treatment and shares a cell with other convicted inmates, contrary to what was speculated in various social media reports.

Oladokun emphasized that the correctional facility does not have en-suite or ‘one-bedroom flat’ style cells. He further explained that the cell block infrastructure is designed to accommodate multiple inmates and does not support the provision of exclusive amenities for any individual.

The statement read, “The attention of the Nigerian Correctional Service Lagos State Command has been drawn to some mischievous and misleading online publications.

“Without prejudice to NCoS right to seek legal redress for the libellous publication, outlined are clarification on the said issues.”

“The convicted inmate, Okuneye Idris Olanrewaju aka Bobrisky, is currently serving a 6-month jail term for abuse and mutilation of the Naira note within the custody of the Custodial Centre in the State.

“The Convict is entitled to the reformative and rehabilitative platforms, including educational and/or vocational training, as provided to all inmates in custody.

“Idris has been allocated a shared cell with other convicted inmates. There are no en-suite or ‘one-bedroom flat’ style cells in our Custodial Centre, as the cell blocks infrastructure are built as shared buildings to accommodate multiple inmates.”
