EFCC to arraign Mompha at ikeja high court, on Wednesday

EFCC to re-arraign Mompha on Wednesday on Alleged Money Laundering Charges Ismail Mustapha with EFCC Officials in Court at an Earlier Hearing

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission says it will arraign internet celebrity, Ismailia Mustapha, on another charge of allegedly laundering funds obtained through unlawful activities and retention of alleged proceeds of crime.

He is to be brought before Justice Mojisola Dada of the Lagos State special offences court sitting in Ikeja on Wednesday January the 12th.

Operatives of the agency from its Lagos command re-arrested Mompha on Monday, January 10.

The suspect is already standing trial alongside his company, Ismalob Global Investment Limited on an amended twenty two-count charge bordering on cyber fraud and money laundering to the tune of N32.9bn (Thirty-two Billion Nine Hundred Thousand Naira) brought against him by the EFCC at the Federal High Court, Lagos. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges and has since been on bail.

Mompha was earlier arrested on October 18, 2019 at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport while boarding an Emirates Airline Flight to Dubai by the staff of the Nigeria Immigration Service, following a watch list by the EFCC.

Mompha is alleged to have used his registered companies to receive illicit funds on behalf of “yahoo yahoo” boys from across the world in return for commission.

His lawyer, Gboyega Oyewole has slammed the new accusations as being “spurious”.
