Nigeria’s convicted controversial cross-dresser, Bobrisky, whose real name is Idris Olanrewaju Okuneye, is not enjoying special previlage in KiriKiri Correctional Centre.

In fact, Bobrisky is sharing cell with other inmates; and not in a one-bedroom flat or an en suite style cell.

The Nigerian Correctional Service, Lagos State Command made the clarification in a statement issued by its spokesperson, Rotimi Oladokun, on Saturday April 27, 2024, in response to report that Bobrisky is in a “special cell.”

The Command stated: “Idris has been allocated a shared cell with other convicted inmates as there are no en-suite or ‘one bedroom flat’ style cells in the Custodial Centre as the cell blocks infrastructure are built as shared buildings, to accommodate multiple inmates.”

The Command further disclosed that Bobrisky was being remanded in a male custodial centre, wears male designated correctional clothing for convicted inmates and being treated like every other inmate without any special amenities or privileges accorded.

Also, the Command refuted the social media report that Bobrisky donated plastic chairs for the correction facility.

Recently, images of plastic white chairs engraved with the name of Bobrisky donating same to the KiriKiri Correctional Centre surfaced on social media.

It was reported that he donated them after he noticed that his guests had no seats to sit on when they visited.

Bobrisky is currently serving a six-month jail term for abuse and mutilation of the national currency, Naira.
