Human rights attorney Inibehe Effiong predicts that social media star and contentious transvestite Idris Okuneye, also known online as Bobrisky, will face challenging circumstances behind bars.

Effiong claims that Bobrisky is not a freedom warrior and doesn’t seem capable of enduring difficult and agonizing conditions in a constrained setting.

After Bobrisky was given a six-month prison sentence for misusing the Naira, the currency of Nigeria, by a Lagos court, Effiong expressed her opinion.

The six-month term was imposed by Justice Abimbola Awogboro without the possibility of a fine.

Remember that since his arrest last week, the controversial celebrity has been under the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, or EFCC.

But the human rights attorney worries that Bobrisky would have a culture shock when entering Ikoyi Prison after the court sentences him.

Effiong stated in a post on his X account that he will start to acclimate to his new environment in a few days.

He said: “Bobrisky will have a difficult experience in the Custodial Centre (prison) because he is not a freedom fighter and does not seem to me like someone that can stay in a restricted environment under harsh and excruciating conditions.

“The main key to surviving imprisonment is mental strength and courage.

The prison wall only breaks those who are not driven by strong convictions.

“For a freedom fighter, it is a training ground. No true activist goes to prison and comes out weaker. They always come out stronger and bolder. History shows this clearly. Any activist who is broken by imprisonment is a pretender.

If you are all about the ‘soft life’, and you are the fragile type and incapable of enduring physical discomfiture, you should avoid imprisonment.

Some of us came out stronger after our imprisonment because we have always been mentally prepared for it and due to our strong ideological disposition.

“Bobrisky will be confronted by a culture shock when he enters Ikoyi Prison and realizes that it is a different world from what he knows.

“After a few days, he will begin to adjust to his new world.”
