Controversial crossdresser Idris Okuneye aka Bobrisky has thrown his weight behind Instagram celebrity Ismaila Mustapha aka Mompha following his arrest by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over allegations of conspiracy to launder N5.9 billion.
The 30-year-old in an Instagram post on Wednesday said his friendship with the accused is pure. He also denied rumours that he was mocking the Instagram celebrity over his arrest.
“I’m that friend that stand till death cos my friendship with you is d purest !!!!! I know wherever you are right now you are fine. Have always know you as a strong man not d weak. Many people try everything to break us cos they don’t understand d friendship, well it’s their business and their opinion.

I value friendship more than my life. I’m here to tell you all that mompha is fine. He will address you all soon. Have a great day,” he wrote.
Bobrisky and Mompha have been making headlines following rumours that the latter dated Bobrisky.
Mompha also threatened a lawsuit against the crossdresser, asking him to apologise for defaming his name.
Meanwhile, Mompha is also currently facing trial at the Federal High Court, Lagos on a 22-count fraud charge proffered against him by the EFCC.
He pleaded not guilty to charge of conspiracy to launder funds obtained through unlawful activity, laundering of funds obtained through unlawful activity and retention of proceeds of criminal conduct.
Other charges are use of property derived from unlawful act, possession of document containing false pretence and failure to disclose assets and properties.
Justice Mojisola Dada adjourned the case until January 18 for hearing of Mompha’s bail application.
