EFCC Denies Claim Of Mompha Bribing His Way Out Of Custody

Recall LASGIDI ONLINE reported that Mompha was arrested by the anti-graft agency on charges of money laundering and internet fraud.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has denied claims of Dubai-based Nigerian man, Ismaila Mustapha a.k.a Mompha bribing his way out of its custody. 

Recall LASGIDI ONLINE reported that Mompha was arrested by the anti-graft agency on charges of money laundering and internet fraud. 

However speculation of Mompha being released came after his Instagram page got reactivated weeks after he deactivated it. Reacting to the development, a Twitter user @azeezsoneye99 asked the EFCC about Mompha’s whereabout. 

He tweeted “Where are we on Mompha’s case? I @segalink @channelstv Why did @officialEFCC delete all posts relating to Mompha’s arrest. A random online post reveals that he’s settling (bribing) his way out. Clear the air in this pls @officialEFCC God bless Naija.”

Serving a response to the tweet, the EFCC stated that Mompha is still being remanded on court orders and will soon be arraigned. The anti-graft agency also urged Nigerians to disregard the claim. 

“This information about Mompha “bribing” his way out is false and MUST be disregarded.

“Ismaila Mustapha A.K.A. Mompha is still being remanded on court orders and will soon be arraigned. #SayNoToCorruption #BeAccountable” EFCC tweeted.
