JUST-IN: NCS Moves Bobrisky To Kirkiri Prison

Published

on

The Nigerian Correctional Service (NCS) has moved the troubled transvestite, Idris Okuneye, also known as Bobrisky, from the Ikoyi Correctional Center to the Kirikiri Prison.

Bobrisky was sentenced to six months in prison for abusing the Naira.

Contrary to speculations, Bobrisky is not currently being housed at the Ikoyi Correctional Facility.

According to LEADERSHIP, the popular cross-dresser is presently held at the Kirikiri Prison and was discreetly transferred since last weekend to Kirikiri.

He stated, “It is procedural that he is moved to Kirikiri since it is an expansive prison compared to what we have here.”

He added that due to security reasons, Okuneye was quietly moved to the facility where he will serve his term.

It would be recalled that Justice Abimbola Awogboro of the Federal High Court in Lagos sentenced the cross-dresser to six months imprisonment.

While sentencing the convict on Friday, April 12, 2024, the judge said the verdict would serve as deterrent to others who are fond of abusing and mutilating the naira.

Bobrisky is being identified as a male based on his admission at the court last week and according to reports that there is no realignment of gender or genital organs.

The source affirmed that the convict has been taken to the male cell with other inmate “and so he will be treated as a normal inmate,” he said.

E-Money vows to train Jnr Pope’s three sons

Published

on

Popular businessman and socialite, Emeka Okonkwo, aka E-Money, has promised to take care of the children of late Nollywood actor, Junior Pope.

Recall that Junior Pope and three others lost their lives after their boat capsized on the Anam River in Anambra State while returning from a movie location.

Mourning the late actor, E-Money disclosed that Junior Pope’s last words were about his commitment to train his three sons.

He pledged to fulfil the late actor’s wish by taking over the responsibility for his kids.

On his Instagram page, he wrote:

“It has been one week since you departed from this world, leaving behind a profound sense of loss that reverberates not only among us but also across Africa and beyond.

“Your presence, as both a friend and a brother, is deeply missed, JP. The weight of your absence bears heavily upon our hearts, yet we draw comfort from the belief that God will grant us the resilience to carry forward and uphold the legacy you’ve entrusted to us.

“We tenderly remember your final words on the boat, ‘Na only me dem born, I get 3 children na me go raise them,’ and we solemnly commit to honoring that vow.

“Your children now find solace in the embrace of the Okonkwo family, and we, as members of that family, pledge to nurture them as you would have wished. Your absence leaves a palpable void, JP, and your memory will forever be held dear. Rest peacefully, knowing that you are deeply cherished, and may God’s blessings encompass your soul, your family, and all who hold you in their hearts.”

Gospel singer Lara George slams Pastor Paul Enenche, insists on public apology to Anyim Vera

Published

on

By Emmanuel Agaji

Lara George, a veteran gospel singer, drags Pastor Paul Enenche, insisting that his apology be as loud as his condemnation of Anyim Vera, whom he publicly embarrassed in his church.

Naijablitznews recalls that the Senior Pastor of Dunamis Church, Pastor Paul Enenche, sparked a lot of controversy on social media after he excoriated a lady in his church for her testimony, which he believed was false.

However, the church issued a statement regarding the incident, and Pastor Paul Enenche and his wife, Becky, spoke with Vera about it, after which they promised to sweep everything that transpired under the carpet.

Lara George, who remarked on the incident, stated that what the Church wrote was not an apology, and that the pastor should properly apologize to the lady who had suffered shame.

According to her, the write-up was more of an insult upon an injury already inflicted on Vera Anyim.

Her write-up read …

“Erm. That’s not an apology. When it leaves room for doubt, you haven’t apologized. WWJD?
Be humble enough to apologize to her properly.
Let your apology be as loud and as clear as your criticism.

Nah! It’s not nice. Doesn’t matter who you are, we should all treat others as we would like to be treated. She doesn’t speak as well as you think she should, therefore you can conclude she is telling a lie? Based on the way she speaks?

The way she speaks is a reflection of what we have allowed in our society. Every politician that you coddled instead of speaking the truth to, who stole funds that should have gone into healthcare, or education, or any other public welfare initiative…… well…… that’s the outcome. Graduates who speak like that. And you…. contributed to the condition of that society. The contributions from people like her is what has built the edifice you sit in. And while you sit there, we don’t hear you speak for the voiceless or defend the helpless.

Nah. It’s not nice. Apologize to her properly. Unequivocally. That write-up that you had your people do, is really an insult on top of her injury. You know this. You would never dare address the matter that way if she was from a wealthy background.

At the end of the day, the way you treat someone who you think you will never need is the true indicator of your character”.
