EFCC Re-arrests, Arraigns Mompha For Money Laundering




The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Monday arraigned social media celebrity, Ismaila Mustapha aka Mompha for N6,000,000,000 money laundry after he was re-arrested.



The anti-graft agency’s counsel, Suleiman Suleiman, told Justice Mojisola Dada of Ikeja Special Offences Court in Lagos that the prosecution in collaboration with its international partners secured the arrest of the celebrity.

He said, “The prosecution will 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 for an adjournment that he will be absent today in court,” Suleiman said.

However, Justice Dada further adjourned the case until July 3 for a continuation of the trial.

On June 30, 2022, that Mompha’s absence stalled his alleged N6 billion money laundering trial before Justice Mojisola Dada of the Ikeja Special Offences Court and the agency declared him wanted in September 2022.
