According to reports, Bobrisky was arrested yesterday by operatives of the Inspector General Police (IG) Monitoring Unit from Abuja over a N30 million deal.
Police sources state that the popular crossdresser was picked up while driving in Lekki. The policemen reportedly entered his white Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) and drove off with him.
Confirming his arrest, The Nation reported that police spokesman DCP Frank Mba explained that Bobrisky was picked up after an Abuja-based public official petitioned the police accusing him of N30m fraud.
“Yes, Bobrisky was arrested in the early hours of today following a petition by a Nigerian woman that the cross dresser collected N30m from her for sales but did not keep to the end of the deal. Bobrisky was granted bail but the case is still an active one. It is a case under investigation.”
It was reported that Bobrisky had a misunderstanding with a Nigerian woman who is based abroad over the sales and marketing of an artificial eyelash brand.
He has since been granted bail after being detained for a while.
