“Bobrisky Not Getting VIP Treatment In Kirikiri Correctional Centre” — NCoS Insists | MarvelTvUpdates

The Nigerian Correctional Service (NCoS), Lagos State Command, has refuted claims that popular social media personality Idris Okuneye, known as Bobrisky, is accommodated in a VIP apartment at the Kirikiri Correctional Centre.

Reports circulating online alleged that Bobrisky, who is currently serving a six-month prison sentence for abuse of the naira notes, was enjoying special privileges in a newly built VIP apartment within the correctional facility.

In response to the claims, the NCoS released a statement signed by its spokesperson, Rotimi Oladokun, clarifying the situation. 

The statement categorically denied the existence of en-suite-style cells or one-bedroom flats within the Kirikiri Correctional Centre.

According to the statement, Bobrisky, like other convicted inmates, has been allocated a shared cell within the facility. 

Part of the statement read: “The attention of the Nigerian Correctional Service Lagos State Command has been drawn to some mischievous and misleading online publications. 


“Without prejudice to NCoS right to seek legal redress for the libellous publication, outlined are clarifications on the said issues. 

“The convicted inmate, Okuneye Idris Olanrewaju a.k.a. Bobrisky is currently serving a six-month jail term for abuse and mutilation of the naira note within the custody of the custodial centre in the state. 

“The Convict is entitled to the reformative and rehabilitative platforms, either educational and/or vocational training as provided to all inmates in custody. 

“Idris has been allocated a shared cell with other convicted inmates. There are no en-suite or ‘one-bedroom flat’ style cells in our Custodial Centre as the cell blocks infrastructure are built as shared buildings to accommodate multiple inmates.

“Idris is being treated just as every other inmate without any special amenities or privilege accorded. All inmates are entitled to family and legal visits. These visits are monitored and regulated by NCoS.”
