Over 500 Nigerian youths took to he streets in Abuja in protest of the lifestyle of cross-dresser, Idris Okunneye, popularly known as Bobrisky.
The protesters who are under the National Youths Council of Nigeria, stated that they are not in support of the practices going on in the country and that they support the stance taking against him by the National Centre for Arts and Culture(NCAC), National Council of Women Society(NCWS), Christian Association of Nigeria(CAN) and other organizations.
The protesters proceeded with their placards to the National Assembly, Force Headquarters and stopped at NCAC. The activities of Bobrisky were described as ungodly by the Vice President of NYCN (North Central Zone), Mukhtar Jebba.
He said , “Consequently , the NYCN today, September 18th 2019 declares Bobrisky as persona non grata, as he is a man (not a woman) . For national interest, we call on the ever – conscious, ever- ready, combatant Nigerian youths and comrades of like minds to, without fear or favour, kick out Bobrisky and his likes wherever they come across them. Nigeria is not a place for LGBT and we shall fight this to the end . ”
