Popular cross dresser, Bobrisky has gone into hiding after heavily armed policemen stormed his 28th birthday celebration at a venue in Lekki, Lagos on Saturday.
Reports say Bobrisky immediately disappeared into thin air when police officers stormed the venue for his birthday celebration, and after searching for him to no avail, the policemen shut down the venue of the event.
Scores of guests who turned up for the birthday party were reportedly arrested by the policemen while bouncers who were meant to screen guests at the Lekki venue of the shinding were chased away.
The development comes after Bobrisky replied Otunba Olusegun Runsewe, the Director-General of the National Council for Arts and Culture, who said last week that the cross dresser is a National disgrace and will soon be dealt with by the government.
“Bobrisky is a national disgrace. He started by selling and using bleaching creams, now, he has grown boobs, bums and hips. If a Bobrisky is doing well with his immoral lifestyle, how do you convince Nigerian youths to do the right thing? Bobrisky has the right, but not within the Nigerian environment,” the NCAC DG had said in an interview.
