Again, Ismaila Mustapha, popularly called Mompha, has been re-arrested by Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) for fresh charge against him.
Daily News Nigeria recalled that the Internet Celebrity was arrested last year October over money laundering crime.
However, after his release, some of his properties, the likes of wristwatches, iPhone, mobile phones, Air Pod, Sunglasses and among others were seized from him.
Following his case, the Judge, Justice Mohammed Liman recently ordered EFCC to give him back his properties because it is not part of the money laundering filed against him.
Sources thereby disclosed that the moments Mompha was about leaving the EFCC premises after he went to Ikoyi, Lagos to collect his properties, he was detained back to their custody.
According to Mompha’s Lawyer, Gboyega Oyewole, he said the reason for his re-arrest is yet to be disclosed.
“They claimed that there is new charge”, he added.
Relatively, Dele Oyewale, the EFCC Spokesperson, revealed that his fresh arrest is not related to the former money laundering but internet fraud.
