Share This



A Federal High Court in Lagos, on Thursday, dismissed a ‘no case’ application filed by a social media celebrity facing a N32.9 billion fraud charge, Mr Ismail Mustapha, alias Mompha.

Justice Mohammed Liman held that the evidence and testimonies of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) witnesses established a prima facie case against Mompha, requiring him to explain himself.



The judge directed Mompha and his co- defendant to open their defence on March 10. Mustapha, alias Mompha, and his firm, Ismalob Global Investment Ltd, were on March 4, 2020 re-arraigned before Liman on 22 counts of alleged money laundering and cyber fraud.
