Alibaba mocks arrest of Bobrisky by EFCC

Nigeria’s ace comedian, Alibaba, has weighed in on the arrest of Bobrisky by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

NEWSMEN  reported that Bobrisky, a self-proclaimed transgender and crossdresser, was arrested in Lagos on Wednesday night for allegedly mishandling naira notes.

The crossdresser was arrested for allegedly spraying and damaging the currency notes at an event.

Reacting, Alibaba took to his Instagram page and shared a picture showing men spraying and stepping on currency notes at a party.

The comedian, in sarcasm, questioned whether the EFCC’s failure to take action against the men was because of their gender.

He also questioned the justification behind Bobrisky’s arrest, stating that it was unfair.

Alibaba in apparent sarcasm implied that the EFCC disproportionately targets women, suggesting that the treatment of women in Nigeria is unjust.

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

“Now, the 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,” Alibaba wrote.
