Controversial Nigerian transgender and socialite Idris Okuneye, popularly known as Bobrisky, has slammed the gay suspects arrested in Delta State.
According to Bobrisky, they deserved how they were treated after ignoring the existing law prohibiting men from marrying each other in Nigeria.
Recall that the Delta State Police Command on Tuesday arrested 67 suspects for allegedly holding a same-sex wedding ceremony.
Bobrisky took to his Instagram page on Tuesday to react to the event.
“Hey guys, I want to quickly address those set of guys who were arrested in Delta. You see this class is not actually meant for everyone. But I strongly believe you can learn from those Alist.
“Firstly, there’s a law passed against you guys that you can’t marry yourself in this country. Why the hell did you all call yourself together to organize a wedding? You all deserve how you were treated,” he said.
“If you feel you are in love with your partner and you want to be together why not relocate to where you are welcome?”
It was earlier reported that the Delta State Police Command paraded 67 gay suspects, arrested at an alleged gay wedding in a hotel in Uvwie Local Government Area of the state.
The state Police spokesman, Bright Edafe, said they would be prosecuted in line with laws related to anti-gay issues.
He said about 100 of them were arrested but at the end of the profiling, the number was scaled down to 67.
“We arrested about a hundred of them but after investigation the number of the suspects dropped to 67. They will be arraigned in court in line with the laws of the land,” he said.
An invitation card to the party where the suspected gays were arrested sighted by Vanguard simply read: “All white party/award nite. Dress code white and white. 1k gate fee, table for four 5k. Date August 26, 2023.”
The police image maker also warned youths to desist from acts running against the laws of the land.
He also advised those into criminal activities in Warri, Uvwie and other parts of the state to shun such acts, saying the command was determined to smoke them out.
“The command is ever ready to smoke out criminal elements in Warri, Uvwie and other parts of the state. I urge all youths on behalf of the state Commissioner of Police, Wale Abass, to be law-abiding. Shun every temptation to go into crime because if you are caught, the laws will apply,” he said.
