Nigerians have attacked the Federal Government over a comment made by the Director-General of the National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC), Segun Runsewe, that transvestite, Idris Okuneye, popularly known as Bobrisky, was worse than Ebola.
Mr Runsewe told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on September 28 that if Bobrisky’s activities were not promptly curtailed, the effect would be worse than the Ebola outbreak.
“Bobrisky is a national disaster, an embarrassment to the country, engaging in cultural corruption as a cross-dresser and we have to start to curtail his activities before it gets out of hands.
“We will not allow Bobrisky to destroy the future of our youths and the unborn Nigerians,” he said.
Runsewe added that the police aborted the cross-dresser’s birthday in Lagos on August 31 because he was allegedly “training some Nigerian youths to tow the same line with him.”
Nigerians on Twitter have called on the Federal Government to leave Bobrisky alone and focus on improving the nation’s economy.
