The Nigeria Police Force has explained why cross-dresser, Idris Okuneye, popularly known as Bobrisky was released on bail.
The Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba, said Bobrisky who was arrested in connection to a N30m fraud was granted bail because the police is “mindful of the people” it takes into custody.
A yet-to-be-identified businesswoman was said to had petitioned the police over the said fraud.
The matter is said to be under investigation.
“He (Bobrisky) was arrested, but he has been granted bail; he is no longer in our custody but he is still under investigation. He was arrested on the allegation by a businesswoman that he fraudulently collected N30m from her.
“We had to grant him bail because of the lockdown and we are also mindful of the people we take into custody but the case is still under investigation,” the Punch quoted him as saying.
