Nigerians are seriously questioning EFCC’s for the arrest of social media celebrity, Ismaila Mustapha aka Mompha.
In a statement released by EFCC yesterday October 22nd, said Mompha was arrested for alleged internet related fraud and money laundering. The antigraft body in its statement disclosed that Mompha ” who allegedly perpetrates his fraudulent activities under the guise of being a Bureau de Change operator is always seen with his little son flaunting huge amount of foreign currencies on his social medial platforms”.
The EFCC said Mompha was arrested on October 18th when he was leaving Nigeria and that at the point of his arrest, five wristwatches with a total worth of over twenty million naira (N20, 000, 000: 00) was recovered from him.
Some Nigerians are however challenging Mompha’s arrest, pointing out that the commission has failed to state the evidence it has against Mompha. They believe it is one of the media trials of the agency. See their tweets below.
