EFCC confirms arrest of flamboyant social media ‘big boy’, Mompha

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has now confirmed the arrest of Ismaila Mustapha, a self-acclaimed bureau de change operator popularly known as ‘Mompha’ on Instagram.

Details of Mompha’s offence, especially the amount and illicit trade involved, could not be immediately obtained, but he is detained by the EFCC.

Wilson Uwujaren, a spokesperson for the EFCC, confirmed this afternoon that Mompha had been taken into custody by anti-graft detectives, but declined to provide further details.

Mompha reportedly fled his base in Dubai to evade arrest from the International Criminal Police Organization, INTERPOL over fraud related crimes before he was captured in Nigeria.
