Bobrisky, the Nigerian crossdresser also known as Okuneye Idris Olanrewaju, has appealed against his conviction.

It should be noted that he was recently found guilty of naira abuse by a Federal High Court in Lagos. The court had sentenced him to six months in prison without the option of a fine for his involvement in naira abuse on April 12.

In his appeal, which was filed by his lawyer, Deji Adeyanju, Bobrisky requests the appellate court to overturn the six-month prison sentence that was imposed on him.

“Trial Judge erred in law and facts by his imposition of the maximum sentence of months imprisonment terms against the appellant without option of fine contrary to the provisions of Section 416(2) d of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act of 2015 (“ADCJA”) that prescribed the mandatory guidelines on the trial court on imposition of sentencing after criminal conviction of a first time offender as the appellant.”
The appeal therefore “is seeking an order setting aside the six months maximum imprisonment sentence imposed on the appellant and in its place, an imposition of a fine in the sum of N50,000 on each of the counts against the appellant”.
In other news, Charles Oputa, a well-known Nigerian activist, also known as Charly Boy, criticized the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for prosecuting businessman Cubana Chiefpriest for Naira abuse.He accused the anti-corruption agency of engaging in unnecessary activities to divert the attention of Nigerians.

Charly Boy questioned why the EFCC is focusing on Naira abuse instead of more serious crimes. He defended the act of spraying Naira as a cultural tradition that fosters unity among people.

Charly Boy expressed his disappointment with the three-count charge brought against Paschal Okechukwu, also known as Cubana Chief Priest, suggesting that the EFCC should prioritize more important tasks instead of engaging in frivolous actions that only serve to distract the less fortunate in Nigeria.

In a post on Instagram, Charly Boy shared his thoughts on the matter.

He wrote;

“Currently, the attention of Nigerians is being drawn to an issue that has no bearing whatsoever, on the well-being of the ordinary people or the National economy.

“The arrest and arraignment of person or persons spraying the local currency, Naira, at social events is now a f3cking Big deal.”

He continued: “Why focus massive energy, on frivolous, pedestrian, and harmless misdemeanor by people catching fun rather than going after those who use executive powers to steal humongous amounts from the public Treasury with reckless impunity?

“God punish all of una in EFCC, una no go die better. Ur Fathers.

“Seriously my people una think say na the kin work EFCC suppose to dey do?”
