Spokesperson of the Delta State Police Command, DSP Bright Edafe, has insinuated that Bobrisky and James Brown can’t be arrested because they are cross-dressers.
The command on Tuesday, August 29, 2023, paraded some suspects arrested at a same-sex wedding held in a hotel in Warri.
The PPRO stated this when he responded to social media commentator, Daniel Regha’s tweet questioning why the suspects’ “mentors”, Bobrisky and James Brown, have not been arrested.
“Bobrisky, James Brown, Eni & others who champion cross-dressing are still walking free; Until these people are prosecuted, many will continue to emulate. Arresting 100 cross-dressers in Delta is one thing, but why ignore their mentors? The police should make an example of ’em,” Mr. Regha said.
In response to the tweet, DSP Edafe; “Daniel, get your facts right, they were not arrested for cross-dressing, they were arrested for conducting and attending a gay wedding ceremony. Bring a part of the law that stipulates punishment for cross-dressing or categorize it as an offense.”
