Mompha Released From EFCC Custody At Last

Nigerian Internet celebrity, Ismaila Mustapha, alias Mompha, was on released from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) custody on Wednesday.

He had been earlier released on bail about two weeks after he was re-arrested by the anti-graft agency in Lagos.

His lawyer, Gboyega Oyewole, disclosed that his client had instructed him to withdraw the N5 million fundamental rights suit he filed against the EFCC to challenge the act of re-arrest.

Mompha is in an ongoing trial battle alongside his company, Ismalob Global Investment Ltd, on an amended 22-count charge bordering on cyber fraud and money laundering to the tune of N33 billion.

Information we received from PREMIUM TIMES gave details of how he was re-arrested on the 14th of August.

He was arrested upon his visit to the EFCC office in Ikoyi, Lagos in a bid to reclaim his luxury possessions.

The items include five luxury wristwatches, an Apple iPod, an iPhone 8 device, and a pair of sunglasses, which were among other items found on him when he was arrested on October 19, 2019, in Abuja.

His visit to the EFCC office followed a July 24 ruling by Justice Mohammed Liman ordering the release of the items.
