‘The Most Useless And Corrupt Nigeria Agency’

A popular businessman, Ismaila Mustapha, commonly known as Mompha, has openly criticized the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) as a “useless” and corrupt organization.

This response comes in the wake of the EFCC’s claims that a colossal sum of N35 billion was discovered in his bank accounts.

Mompha is currently embroiled in a legal battle with the EFCC, facing multiple charges of money laundering in connection with his company, Ismalob Global Investment Limited.

He was arraigned on an eight-count charge which includes allegations of conspiracy to launder funds obtained through unlawful activity, retention of proceeds of criminal conduct, and failure to disclose assets and property.

During the ongoing trial, which commenced in January 2022, EFCC prosecution witness and investigator, Idi Musa, testified that the said funds were found in two bank accounts linked to Mompha.

Reacting to these developments, Mompha expressed his disdain for the anti-graft agency, dismissing the allegations and questioning the integrity of the EFCC.

It was reported that “The sixth prosecution witness, PW6, Idi Musa, in the trial of Ismaila Mustapha, (a.k.a Mompha) an investigator with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Monday, July 1, 2024, told Justice Mojisola Dada of the Special Offences Court sitting in Ikeja, Lagos how the sum of N35bn was found in two bank accounts linked to the defendant.

“The Lagos Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, had, on January 12, 2022, arraigned Mompha alongside his company, Ismalob Global Investment Limited, on an eight-count charge bordering on conspiracy to launder funds obtained through unlawful activity, retention of proceeds of criminal conduct, laundering of funds obtained through unlawful activity, failure to disclose assets and property, possession of documents containing false pretences and use of property derive from unlawful act.”
