Bobrisky Reacts After Abuja Court Sentenced His Greatest Enemy, Olusegun Runsewe To Prison
Nigerian cross-dresser Bobrisky has reacted after the Director-General of NCAC Olusegun Runsewe was sent to prison for disobeying court order.
Thecable news reported that a federal high court in Abuja sentenced Olusegun Runsewe, director-general of the National Council of Art and Crafts (NCAC), to prison for contempt of court.
Jude Okeke, the judge, gave the ruling on Thursday.
This was based on a suit filed by Ummakalif Ltd against the Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA); Runsewe; and Lai Mohammed, minister for culture and tourism, serving as the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th defendants respectively.
Runsewe was sent to prison for contempt of the order of court made on December 15, 2017.
In 2017, an FCT high court had restrained the NCAC from demolishing and evicting traders from the Abuja Arts and Crafts Village.
Despite the order, the village was closed by the police, who said they would only reopen on the orders of the NCAC director-general.
The villagers had alleged that the police arrested those who were guarding the market after the December 11, 2017, fire incident that razed down 35 shops and destroyed multimillion naira goods.
The traders then filed a suit seeking an order of the court committing Runsewe to prison for contempt of court.
