Mompha has been listed as wanted by the EFCC for money laundering.

Mompha is being prosecuted by the EFCC for allegedly participating in N6 billion worth of money laundering.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has listed Mompha, a well-known figure on social media, as a wanted person (EFCC).

On Wednesday, August 3, 2022, the anti-corruption organization made the decision public.

 

The offense: The commission is presently holding the social media star on trial for allegations of money laundering worth N6 billion.

 

Mompha, whose international passport had been seized, is said to have procured a new passport and used it to fly to Dubai against a court order, according to sources at the EFCC Headquarters.

Yes, we have declared him wanted. He has defied a court order by travelling out of the country despite having his passport seized

We have made several efforts to get him but all to no avail,” one of the sources told Daily Trust.

 

The EFCC warns the public: Wilson Uwujaren, the commission’s spokesman, confirmed to the newspaper that the social media star had been listed as wanted.

 

Additionally, the EFCC stated that Mompha was wanted for “unlawful conduct” in a notice that was earlier released on Wednesday and was signed by Uwujaren.

 

The notice read, “The general public is hereby notified that ISMAILA MUSTAPHA, whose photograph appears above, is wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in an alleged case of Retention of Proceeds of Criminal Conduct, Possession of Document Containing False Pretences, False Asset Declaration and Laundering of Proceeds of Unlawful Conduct.

 

“Ismaila, 38, hails from Ogbomosho Local Govt Area of Oyo State. His last know address: 21, Fagbenro Street, Idi-Araba, Surulere, Lagos State

Anybody with useful information as to his whereabouts should please contact the commission in its Benin, Kaduna, Ibadan, Sokoto, Gombe, Maiduguri, Makurdi, llorin, Enugu, Kano, Lagos, Gombe, Port Harcourt and Abuja offices or through these numbers 09-9044751-3, 08093322644, 08183322644, 070- 26350721-3, 070-6350724-5; its e-mail address: [email protected] or the nearest Police Station and other security agencies.”

 

The celebrity was brought before Justice Mojisola Dada of the Ikeja Special Offenses Court in Lagos by the EFCC sometime in June of this year.

 

This came after the commission in January accused him and his business, Ismalob Global Investment Ltd, of laundering N6 billion.

 

On March 8, 2022, the court decreased his bail from N200 million to N25 million and ordered him to present his Nigerian passport.
