He said; “I don’t know about the arrest, and the command did not arrest him. He does not have any problem with the command. Ask him who arrested him.”
According to reports, Bobrisky was arrested on Wednesday in his Lekki apartment. While many speculated that his arrest was linked to his admission to being gay, the, controversial cross-dresser said that business mogul Toyin Lawani had ordered his arrest.
The Police Public Relations Officer for Zone 2 Command, Onikan, Lagos, SP Dolapo Badmos, also denied the arrest.

Bobrisky who claims business mogul, Toyin Lawani ordered his arrest, said she accused him of stealing her customers.
And that she asked her lawyer to write petitions against him, stating he worked for her and had poached her customers.
Bobrisky also claims that during his arrest, his phones were taken from him and he was told he needed to wait till morning before travelling to Abuja as the case was first reported in Abuja.
Bobrisky said: “I never worked for Toyin. She was my friend. I can’t remember ever working for Toyin or learning how to make cream from her.
“Then she also said I threatened her. So we are going to Abuja cause that was where the case was reported. Before she wrote petitions against me, she had already threatened me that she is giving me 7 days to go to the internet and apologize to her which I said no way because she offended me. I think because I refused to apologize, she got the police involved.
Bobrisky said his phones were taken from him and he was told he needed to wait till morning before travelling to Abuja as the case was first reported in Abuja.
