Mompha Arrested: One of the Most Wanted Criminals in Malaysia
Alias Mompha, more popularly known by his real name Ismaila Mustapha is currently under scrutiny due to his involvement in an alleged money laundering scheme estimated to cost N6 billion as charged by Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
On May 15, the EFCC confirmed Mompha was arrested again. At his court hearing in June 2022, they informed Justice DadaMo that Mompha had breached his bail conditions by using an additional passport to fly Emirates Airlines from Ghana to Dubai on April 11th 2022 – breaching them so severely that Justice DadaMo issued an arrest warrant against him and issued N25 million bail as compensation.
Additionally, the EFCC has been searching for Mompha since June 16, 2022 when he went missing during his trial. Their efforts to locate and bring him before Justice Dada have failed thus leading him to make the decision on September 22, 2022 to proceed with it in absentia.
