Lagos police spokesman Benjamin Hundeyin

Spokesman of Lagos State Police Command Benjamin Hundeyin has said that policemen seen with crossdresser Bobrisky on Monday at Ikeja City Mall are stationed at the mall to maintain law and order.

Hundeyin stated this on Tuesday on X in reaction to claims that the police were bias in their fight against homosexuality.

Bobrisky was at a cinema in the mall to support actress and movie producer Eniola Ajao on the release of her film Ajakaju: Beast of Two Worlds.

The controversial personality arrived the cinema for a meet and greet and was welcomed by a large crowd.

Many trooped in to take pictures with the crossdresser, which almost resulted in a stampede.

Led by Eniola, Bobrisky exchanged pleasantries with his fans before heading into the cinema to watch the film.

Several videos of the crossdresser at the cinema have been circulating on the internet.

Reacting to criticism over the policemen seen around Bobrisky, Hundeyin wrote: “The policemen in that video did not come with anybody, neither did they leave with anybody. They are posted there to maintain peace, order and security of the ICM. And that was exactly what they were doing as the situation was turning rowdy.

“We would not wait for something untoward to happen and have Nigerians say, ‘But the police were there and did nothing. Why then were they there?’”

Meanwhile, the announcement of Bobrisky as the best dressed female at the movie premiere on March 24 sparked controversy on social media.
