Bobrisky has been sentenced to six months in prison for abusing the naira notes.

Bobrisky was handed the sentence on Friday morning by Abimbola.

Awogboro, a judge of the federal high court in Lagos and the verdict, also ruled that the sentence is without the option of a fine.

She ruled that the jail term commences on March 24, the day of her arrest. The judge said the verdict would serve as a deterrent to other persons fond of abusing and mutilating the Nigerian currency.

The social media celebrity was arrested on April 4 in Lagos for defacing the naira notes.

The crossdresser was arraigned on a six-count charge last Friday by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

While four of the charges are related to naira abuse, the remaining two counts involve alleged money laundering.

The self-proclaimed transgender, however, pleaded guilty to the first four counts bordering on naira abuse.

The presiding judge struck out counts five and six following the request of the EFCC’s counsel.
