The Lagos State Acting Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, has stated popular online personality, Idris Okuneye, aka Bobrisky, was not arrested as there was no report made against him.
Speaking in a phone conversation, he said, “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.”
The Police Public Relations Officer for Zone 2 Command, Onikan, Lagos, SP Dolapo Badmos, also asserted that she was unaware of Bobrisky’s arrest.
It was rumoured that Bobrisky made a Snapchat post about being gay, which he later deleted. Another version states that he was arrested by socialite and entrepreneur, Toyin Lawani, due to a social media feud.
