-“I don’t bite, feel free”
A Nigerian cross-dresser, Idris Okuneye, popularly known as Bobrisky has taken to his social media handle to decry the fear people have for him when they see him outside or in an occasion these days.
She said people don’t come to take pictures with him as they use to do.
It could be recalled that in October, 2019, the Federal Government, through Otunba Segun Runsewe, Director-General of National Centre for Arts and Culture, a parastatal of the Federal Ministry of Information and Culture, had asked travellers and tourists to be careful wherever they notice the presence of Bobrisky, mostly as it affects sharing of public facilities, including toilets.
The report followed a report received by the Federal Government on how Idris Okuneye caused a stir at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja when he used a female toilet.
While appealing to the leadership of Nigeria Medical Association to enlighten people on the dangers of women sharing public toilet with Bobrisky, the government said that by using public female toilet, Bobrisky had constituted a serious threat to women.
Sharing his sad experience in an event on Monday, Bobrisky pleaded with people not to be afraid of him; that he doesn’t bite.
“I went to a party three days ago. . . people are scared of coming close to take pictures. . .so one woman later came close and said bob I want a pic with you 😂😂😂😂😂. That she was scared coming close.”
“But next time, feel free to come close. I don’t bite.”
