Sowore reacts to Bobrisky's jail sentence, slams EFCC

Sowore reacts to Bobrisky's jail sentence, slams EFCC

Omoyele Sowore, the African Action Congress' presidential candidate in the 2019 and 2023 general elections, has condemned the six-month jail term handed down by a Federal High Court in Lagos to Bobrisky.

The controversial crossdresser was sentenced for mutilating the Naira currency and in his reaction, Sowore claimed that real destroyers of the nation's economy and currency have yet to be imprisoned for crimes against Nigeria.

On Friday, the activist wrote on his Facebook page that it remains to be seen how the EFCC will handle the cases involving real financial crooks being pursued since 2007.

Sowore pointed out that the energy placed into the prosecution and jailing of Bobrisky by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, demonstrated that his true offence could not have been spraying of Naira at parties. 

He wrote: “The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission is gleefully announcing that Bobrisky has been jailed for six months without an option of a fine for “mutilating” the Nigerian currency, the Naira.

“The real people destroying the economy, like former President Muhammadu Buhari, his former Attorney General, Abubakar Malami, SAN, his former personal secretary, Tunde Sabiu, and even the former Central Bank of Nigeria governor, @Godwin Emefiele (who was just now granted an N50M bail in Lagos for an offence involving N50 billion), are yet to be jailed for the massive economic damage they did to ruin Nigeria.

“The energy put into prosecuting and jailing a crossdresser, Bobrisky, shows his real offence could not have been spraying Naira at a party.

“Let’s see how the EFCC handles cases involving real financial criminals, a long list being prosecuted since 2007-who destroyed the naira in the near future. #RevolutionNow.”
