Nigerian crossdresser and social media influencer Idris Okuneye, popularly known as ‘Bobrisky’ has reacted to the House of Reps’ move to ban cross-dressing in Nigeria.
The bill which was read on April 5, 2022, is attempting to criminalize cross-crossing in the country, in addition to the SSMPA of 2013.
If this comes into play, crossdressers will face a 6-month jail term or pay a fine of N500,000. However, people who crossdress for entertainment purposes are exempt.
Bob has declared officially that she is a transgender woman and he does not crossdress.
She revealed this via Instagram, in a post where she also states she has medical records as evidence to support her claim, as she has undergone multiple surgeries to transition.
Her post reads “I’m not a cross a dresser, I’m a woman. Have done many surgeries that can’t be reversed such as lipo, boobs etc… when the time come even court self go confirm as say I’m now a girl.”
“Still have many upcoming surgeries to be done. Na who be crossdresser go they fear. I have all my Doctors report on my surgeries” she added in the caption.
