Bobrisky’s Arrest 

   Justice Abimbola Awogboro of the Federal High Court sitting in Ikoyi, Lagos, on Friday, April 12, 2024, sentenced Bobrisky to six months imprisonment over mutilation   of the Naira notes.

     He was previously arraigned on Friday, April 5,2024, on a four-count charge bordering on mutilation of the Naira notes to the tune of N490,000[Four Hundred and Ninety Thousand Naira].

Count one reads: “That you , OKUNEYE IDRIS OLAREWAJU, on the 24th day of March,2024, at IMax Circle Mall, Jakende, Lekki, within the jurisdiction of this Honorable Court, whilst dancing during a social event, tampered with the total sum of N400,000[Four Hundred Thousand Naira] notes issued by the Central Bank of Nigeria by spraying same, you thereby commited and offense contrary to and punishable by law under section 21(1)of the Central Bank Act,2007”.

  He pleaded “guilty” to the charges when they were read to him.

   At the last sitting, the prosecution counsel, S.I. Sulaiman, urged the court to allow the investing officer, ASE I Bolaji Temitope Aje, to give a brief review against him.

   Aje narrated to the court that the EFCC received intelligence on some individuals, who are in the habit of multilating and spraying the Naira notes at social parties and event centers in Lagos.

   According to him, “Based on the intelligence, the EFCC sef up the Special Operations Team to observe and monitor activity of individuals, who are involved in the habit of mutilating Naira.

     The team visited many event centers and  monitored social media pages  where the Naira was abused. During the course of the monitoring, the team came across videos on social media, where the defendant [Bobrisky] was seen on social media abusing the Naira. The team then downloaded these videos via our office laptop computer and also went further to copy these videos on compact dics.

   The defendant was shown the videos where he was spraying money on an artiste called Segun Johnson, also at IMAX Mall where he sprayed a total of 400,000 at a movie premiere, and Aja Junction, Ikorodu, and the White Stone Event Centre, Ikeja, lagos. He admitted to spraying money in these videos.

   Justice Awogboro had, thereafter, ruled that “upon the admission of guilt by the defendant, testimony of PW1 and following the evidence tendered, the defendant is declared guilty as charged.”

   In his plea for mercy, Bobrisky said: “ I am a social media influencer with five million followers; and in all honesty, I was not aware of the law. I wish I can be given a second chance to use my platform to educate my followers against the abuse of Naira.”

  Also, his lawyer had said:”He will lead the crusade against the abuse of Naira. He is also an employer if people; and if he goes to jail, the people he employs will suffer. He has cooperated with the EFCC and has not wasted the time of the court. We urge the court to caution the defendant and allow him go. He has given evidence that he will be useful to the country. We urge you grant a non-custodial sentencing option of fine.”

After listen to both parties, Justice Awogboro held that “ The act of mutilating the Naira notes has become a menace, which has continued to damage the image of the country.

 “Enough of people’s mutilating and tampering with our currencies. It has to stop. His will serve as a deterrent to others.”

 The judge thereby, sentenced him to six months imprisonment, without an option of fine, from the date of his remand.

@CryptoDefiLord: This sentence is too harsh for the offense. There should be an option of bail. I hope you will go for everyone abusing Naira.


@igwedip:But he is a first time offender.Hope if a politician sprays money, he will also be jailed .



After identifying as a male in court, the correctional service said: “We are holding Bobrisky in male facility, we will protect him from sexual predator.
