The Lagos State Police Command has distanced itself from the arrest of popular cross-dresser, Idris Okuneye also known as Bobrisky.
Speaking, the Acting Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, said the command was not aware of such arrest, adding that no report was made against her.
Edgal told Punch, “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.”
Also reacting, the Police Public Relations Officer for Zone 2 Command, Onikan, Lagos, SP Dolapo Badmos, denied the arrest of the cross-dresser.
She said, “I am not aware of the arrest. Maybe he was arrested by somewhere else.”
Bobrisky, who came out open as gay earlier in the week, was said to have been arrested by police in Lagos on Tuesday.
There were also online speculations that an alleged social media war between the socialite and entrepreneur, Toyin Lawani, may have led to his arrest.
