Mompha is regaining his independence, withdrawing N5m from the EFCC

Internet celebrity Ismaila Mustapha, alias Mompha, was released by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Wednesday.

He was released on bail about two weeks after being re-arrested by the Lagos anti-graft body.

His counsel, Gboyega Oyewole, said that to appeal his re-arrest, Mompha had withdrawn the N5 million human rights suit he filed against the EFCC.

Alongside his firm, Ismalob Global Investment Ltd, Mompha is standing trial on an amended 22-count indictment bordering on cyber fraud and money laundering to the tune of N33 billion.

PREMIUM TIMES reported on 14 August how he was re-arrested.

He was detained on his way to Ikoyi, Lagos, EFCC office to recover his luxurious belongings.

The products include five luxury wristwatches, an Apple iPod, an iPhone 8 smartphone and a pair of sunglasses found on him when he was arrested in Abuja on 19 October 2019, among other products.

His visit to the EFCC office followed a ruling from Justice Mohammed Liman on 24 July requiring the products to be released.
