Mompha Regains His Freedom, Drops N5M Suit Against EFCC (Updated: 2 years ago)


Nigerian Internet sensation Ismaila Mustapha alias Mompha, has been released by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) yesterday, two weeks after he was re-arrested by the anti-graft agency in Lagos.

Mompha was rearrested on Friday, August 14 when he went to the EFCC office in Ikoyi, Lagos to reclaim his five wristwatches, one Apple Air pod, one iPhone 8 mobile phone and one pair of sunglasses, seized by the EFCC operatives in October, 2019 during his first arrest by the agency.

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

Mompha was rearrested and taken into custody as EFCC spokesperson, Dele Oyewale, said Mompha’s re-arrest was connected to a fresh set of cyber fraud charges.

Confirming his release, his lawyer, Gboyega Oyewole (SAN), said Mompha has also withdrawn the his 5million Naira law suit he filed against the EFCC to challenge his re-arrest.
