EFCC rearrests Mompha

Popular social media celebrity, Ismaila Mustapha, aka Mompha, has been rearrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), the Guardian reports.

Mompha is facing money laundering charges before the Federal High Court.

He was rearrested last Friday, when he went to the EFCC office in Ikoyi, Lagos.

Mompha was at the office to reclaim his personal effects, which included five wristwatches, one Apple Air pod, one iPhone 8 and a pair of sunglasses.

Following an application by his lawyer, Gboyega Oyewole (SAN), Justice Mohammed Liman on July 24 ordered the EFCC to release the items.

Liman ruled that the items were not listed as exhibits and the EFCC had no justification to continue to hold onto them.

However, Mompha had barely left the premises, when operatives of the anti-graft agency swooped in and took him back into custody.
