The controversial figure, Idris Okuneye, popularly known as Bobrisky, has arrived at the Federal High Court in Ikoyi, Lagos, to face charges of money laundering and abuse of the Naira currency. The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is set to arraign Bobrisky following his arrest on Wednesday.

Bobrisky, a transgender individual, was escorted to the court premises by EFCC operatives under heavy police presence. The charges against Bobrisky include allegations of laundering N180 million through his company, Bob Express, and abusing Naira notes by spraying them at social events.

In a viral video, Bobrisky was seen showering Naira notes on the floor at a social function, prompting the EFCC to launch an investigation. The charges against him include six counts, with the first four relating to the alleged abuse of the Naira currency at various events in Lagos between July 2023 and December 2023.

Additionally, Bobrisky is accused of failing to declare the financial activities of his company, Bob Express, to the Special Control Unit Against Money Laundering. It is alleged that significant sums of money were deposited into the company’s account without proper declaration, contravening money laundering laws.

The EFCC, represented by counsel Rotimi Oyedepo (SAN), is pursuing the case under the Central Bank Act 2007 and the Money Laundering (Prevention and Prohibition) Act. Bobrisky’s appearance in court marks a significant development in the ongoing legal proceedings against the controversial figure.
