JUST IN: EFCC declares Mompha wanted
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has declared Nigeria’s popular Instagram celebrity, Ismaila Mustapha, popularly known as Mompha, wanted.
The anti-graft agency disclosed this via its Twitter handle on Wednesday as it urged Nigerians with information on Mompha’s whereabouts to speak up or contact the nearest police station.
“Wanted by the EFCC: Ismaila Mustapha. Anyone with useful information as to his whereabouts should contact the EFCC or the nearest police station,” EFCC wrote.
The anti-graft agency had arraigned Mompha and his company, Ismalob Global Investment Ltd, for alleged fraud.
EFCC accused the socialite and his company of N6 billion fraud on January 12.
In a fresh eight-count charge, EFCC accused Mompha of conspiracy to launder funds obtained through unlawful activity and laundering of funds received through illegal activity.
