Bobrisky will be sent to male prison after admitting he is a man in court – NCS

The Nigerian Correctional Service has confirmed that Idris ‘Bobrisky’ Okuneye, a crossdresser known for wearing female clothing, will be placed in the male section of the prison facility for his six-month sentence.

This decision was made after Bobrisky declared his male gender identity during his court appearance.

A spokesperson for the correctional service explained that they must adhere to what was stated in court, as he admitted to being male.

To ensure Bobrisky’s safety and protect him from potential sexual assault by other inmates, measures will be taken by the correctional service.

The spokesperson assured that he would receive adequate protection from other male inmates to prevent any harm.

Despite Bobrisky’s portrayal of transitioning to a female on social media, he will be treated according to his legal gender status while in custody.

Justice Abimbola Awogboro of the Federal High Court in Lagos had previously sentenced Bobrisky to six months in jail without the option of a fine.

Bobrisky, who has a large following on social media platforms like Instagram, will now serve his sentence in the male section of the prison facility, where he will be kept safe from harm.
