Instagram celebrity, Ismaila Mustapha, popularly known as Mompha, has revealed why he is been tried by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
Mompha in post on his Instagram account noted that he has no link with fraud following his case before the anti-graft agency.
The social media celebrity is standing trial on a 22-count bordering on cyber fraud and money laundering to the tune of N33bn.
Recall that Mompha was arrested by the commission in 2020, he was, however, released on bail.
Some have questioned the source of his wealth following the arrest of internet fraudster, Ramon Abbas, popularly known as Hushpuppi.
Mompha in a post on his Instagram account noted that the charges filed against him by the EFCC have nothing to do with fraud.
He added that he’s not a fraudster and is only charged by EFCC for operating BDC without a license.
He wrote, “I wish to also state that the charges filed against me by EFCC are about allegations of operating BDC without a license and has nothing to do with or involving fraud.
“I am, therefore, not a fraudster or in any way associated with fraudsters.”
In a related development, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, on Monday, denied advising Mompha, to keep a low profile.
The anti-graft agency stated this in a statement released through its spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren.
Recall that Mompha in a video claimed that someone from the agency told him to maintain a low profile following the arrest of his friend, Ramon Abbas popularly known as Hushpuppi.
