The EFCC has rearrested social media celebrity & businessman, Ismaila Mustapha better known as Mompha, over alleged N6 billion money laundering.
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 & 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 8 count charge of N6 billion laundering. He, however, pleaded not guilty.
