EFCC Re-arrests Mompha For Alleged Money Laundering
The Lagos Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) says it has re-arrested Ismailia Mustapha, aka Mompha for alleged money laundering.
The EFCC, in a statement by its Head of Media and Publicity Wilson Uwujaren, said Mompha was taken into custody on Monday.
Uwujaren said this followed suspicion that Mompha was laundering funds obtained through unlawful activities and had also retained alleged proceeds of crime.
The statement added: “Mompha is alleged to have used his registered companies to receive illicit funds on behalf of ‘yahoo yahoo’ boys from across the world in return for commissions.
“The account of one of his companies, Ismalob Global Investment Limited Bank, a Bureau de Change company, was allegedly used to launder funds derived from unlawful activities.
“Investigation has revealed a fraudulent transfer slip of $92, 412, 75 found in the suspect’s iPhone 8 device.
“He will soon be charged to court.”
