Social media celebrity, Ismaila Mustapha, alias Mompha, has debunked reports that he was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC)
EFCC had told the court in Ikeja, Lagos State that it had rearrested Mompha who was arraigned on charges of money laundering to the tune of six billion naira
The Commission said in collaboration with its international partners, it secured the arrest of Mompha.
But Mompha in an Instagram live video denied the report.
He accused the Commission of witch-hunting and subjecting him to social media trial.
“I want to use this medium to expose the corrupt and mischievous commission again that I was neither rearrested nor am in the custody of the EFCC.
“This assertion by the EFCC is laughable because I am currently not in Nigeria more or less rearrested either in Nigeria.”
Mompha, however, urged the commission to desist from the alleged media trial and stop misleading the public through the press/media.
He added that he is in Dubai with his family, away from the intimidation and harassment of the EFCC and the corrupt Nigeria judicial system.
