Popular social media celebrity, Ismaila Mustapha, known as Mompha, has been declared wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission over money laundering.
This is coming weeks after a Special Offences Court sitting in Ikeja, Lagos State revoked his N200,000m bail and ordered his arrest for failing to appear in court twice on June 16 and 22.
Punch Metro reported that the EFCC had on January 12 arraigned Mompha and his company, Ismalob Global Investment Ltd, to court over N6bn money laundering charges.
The eight counts border on money laundering, conspiracy to launder money obtained through unlawful activities, and laundering of money obtained through unlawful activities.
Other charges include retention of proceeds of criminal conduct, use of property derived from an unlawful act, possession of a document containing false pretences, and failure to disclose assets.
This publication reported that he was also charged with breaching the terms of his bail by procuring a new passport and travelling to Dubai on April 11.
However, Mompha was declared wanted in a statement signed by EFCC’s spokesperson, Wilson Uwajaren on Wednesday.
“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.
