The Lagos State Acting Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, has denied reports that the command ordered the arrest of self styled Nigerian Male barbie, Bobrisky, born Idris Okuneye.
Speaking in reaction to the arrest of the cross dresser and controversial social media personalityy, Edgal, in a chat with Punch’s correspondent on Wednesday distanced himself and the command from the arrest.
He said during a telephone conversation: “I don’t know about the arrest, and the command did not arrest him. He does not have any problem with the command. Ask him who arrested him.”
Speaking also on the arrest, the Police Public Relations Officer for Zone 2 Command, Onikan, Lagos, SP Dolapo Badmos, also distanced herself and the Police from the arrest stating: “I am not aware of the arrest. Maybe he was arrested by somewhere else.”
Recall that Bobrisky’s arrest came after he admitted in a now deleted social media post that he is gay.
His now famous gateman identified as Jacob also while speaking on the arrest which was carried out at his Lekki house in Lagos on Tuesday, November 7th by men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, also noted that he was not around when the arrest was conducted.
However, following his arrest, Bobrisky revealed that Toyin Lawani, a business mogul was behind the order as she accused him of stealing her customers.
Bobrisky said: “I never worked for Toyin. She was my friend. I can’t remember ever working for Toyin or learning how to make cream from her.
“Then she also said I threatened her. So we are going to Abuja cause that was where the case was reported. Before she wrote petitions against me, she had already threatened me that she is giving me 7 days to go to the internet and apologize to her which I said no way because she offended me. I think because I refused to apologize, she got the police involved.”
Bobrisky further added: “Yesterday at the police station, I was sitting at the counter and I was told I needed to wait until morning to go to Abuja. My phone was taken from me so I couldn’t talk to anyone. I’m trying to get in touch with my lawyer and all the people I know.”
