Alibaba, the Nigerian comedian, has shared his opinion on the arrest of Bobrisky by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).


The self-proclaimed transgender and crossdresser was arrested on Wednesday night in Lagos for allegedly abusing the naira notes.

Bobrisky was apprehended for allegedly spraying the naira notes and currency mutilation, among others.

In a post via his Instagram page, the 58-year-old comedian shared a picture of some men spraying and stepping on the currency notes at a party.


The ace comedian queried if the anti-graft agency “failed to arrest them because they were men”.

He also inquired about the rationale behind Bobrisky’s arrest, adding that “it is not right”.

Alibaba implied that the EFCC is beaming its searchlight on women, arguing that the way ladies are treated in Nigeria is “not good”.


Alibaba also referred to the case of Simi Gold, the actress sentenced to six months in prison in February, adding that the “EFCC has arrested another lady (Bobrisky) for a similar offence”.

“And Bobrisky was arrested for what again? Because they are men? This is not right. The other time on a celebrity lady was sentenced for the same thing,” he wrote.

“Now, EFCC has arrested another lady for the same thing that men get away with. The way we treat women in this country is not good. Mennnnn, I just taya.”

Arresting Bobrisky not fair to women, Alibaba tells EFCC


The crossdresser has been granted bail but she has yet to meet the conditions.

Born Okuneye Idris Olanrewaju, the social media celebrity has always been in the news for controversial reasons.

She claimed to be Nigeria’s first transgender and once admitted to having severed her genitals.

In September 2021, the social media celebrity also talked about some of the perks she enjoys being a “woman”.
