Alleged N6bn Money Laund£ring: EFCC rearrests businessman Mompha



The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has rearrested social media celebrity and businessman, Ismaila Mustapha better known as Mompha, over alleged N6 billion money laund£ring..

The EFCC counsel, Suleiman Suleiman, disclosed this at the Ikeja Special Offences Court on Monday, May 15, 2023.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), he said: “The prosecution would like to bring to the knowledge of my lord that in collaboration with our international partners, we have been able to apprehend the defendant.

We plan to take him into custody and to produce him before the court.

The counsel for the defendant reached out to me seeking an adjournment that he will be absent today in court.”

Justice Mojisola Dada, thereafter, adjourned the case until July 3 for the continuation of the trial.

Recall that EFCC had, on January 22, 2022, arraigned Mompha alongside his company, Ismalob Global Investment, on an eight-count charge of N6 billion laund£ring. He, however, pleaded not guilty.
