EFCC fixes  arraignment date for Bobrisky over alleged money

Bobrisky, the controversial social media personality, is set to face legal proceedings as he is scheduled to appear in court on Friday before Justice Abimbola Awogboro at the Federal High Court in Lagos.

According to Channels television, the charges against him, meticulously outlined in a charge sheet prepared by the EFCC Prosecutor, Senior Advocate of Nigeria Rotimi Oyedepo, along with a team of seven other legal experts, encompass a range of allegations.

The first four counts of the charge sheet are centered around accusations of Bobrisky's involvement in the abuse of the Nigerian currency, the Naira. 

It is alleged that Bobrisky, in the first count, engaged in the unlawful act of tampering with the sum ofof N400,000 by extravagantly spraying the currency while partaking in a social event held at the prestigious IMAX Circle Mall located in Lekki, Lagos.

This ostentatious display, according to the prosecution, constitutes a violation of currency regulations and the sanctity of the Nigerian monetary system.

Furthermore, the latter two counts of the charge sheet delve into more serious allegations of money laundering against Bobrisky.

The prosecution contends that Bobrisky's financial activities extend beyond mere currency abuse and venture into the realm of illicit financial transactions designed to conceal the origins of unlawfully obtained funds.

As the legal proceedings unfold, all eyes are on the Federal High Court in Lagos, where Justice Abimbola Awogboro presides over the case.
