The Director-General of the National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC) has threatened to deal ruthlessly with Bobrisky over his “immoral lifestyle” been showcased on the internet.
Otunba Olusegun Runsewe spoke out about the cross-dresser’s way of life in an interview with The Vanguard, describing him as a “national disgrace.”
According to him, if nothing is done about Bobrisky, it might be too late to stop the male barbie when things escalate among the youth who are influenced.
He said of the self-acclaimed transgender: “Bobrisky is a national disgrace. He started by selling and using bleaching creams, now, he has grown boobs, bums and hips. If a Bobrisky is doing well with his immoral lifestyle, how do you convince Nigerian youths to do the right thing? Bobrisky has the right, but not within the Nigerian environment.”
Segun Runsewe raised alarm over a high rate of suicide cases if Bobrisky is encouraged to live the way he does because no parent wants to see their children become like him.
“There are others like him, but they live outside the country. If we don’t address Bobrisky as early as possible, he will form a team that will spread like wildfire. This will result in a lot of suicide cases, because the typical Nigerian parent would not want to see their child become a Bobrisky. It’s not an entertainment issue, it’s a war to save Nigeria for a better tomorrow. If you start this kind of war, you are bound to be attacked.”
Segun continued, “My job is to preserve and protect the culture of this country. It would be unfair for me to be silent on this. You now find male prostitutes by the roadsides. A popular Nigerian recently paid an unexpected visit to his son in England only to discover that the son is a gay leader. The man was brought back to the country on a wheelchair. I’m talking with the strength of information and authority. I have information that over twenty-three Nigerian boys are already starting Bobrisky’s brand. Immediately we started the war, they pulled out because we are going to get them arrested. They cannot destroy this country.”
On why he’s fixated on the controversial internet sensation while there are other grave issues like corruption to tackle in the country, he says “that’s not my job and that’s why we have the EFCC, ICPC and the rest of them.
He explained: “My job is to protect and preserve the fabric of our good culture. Bobrisky is not a role model or icon Nigerian youths should look up to. We should all condemn him so that he would go back to how he was created. He has a right to leave Nigeria for any country that practises and encourages trans-gender lifestyle. If he is caught on the streets of this country, he will be dealt with ruthlessly.”
