Nigerian big boy Mompha has rubbished claims that he’s wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Mompha took to Instagram to rubbish the claims and clarify that he is wanted by the court, which declared a warrant for him to appear at the next court date.
Sounds like not much of a difference!
Mompha jumped on social media after news went viral Wednesday night that the EFCC declared him a wanted man.
According to a statement released by the notoriously hard-nosed EFCC, Mompha is a wanted man all across Nigeria.
“Wanted by the EFCC: Ismaila Mustapha. Anyone with useful information about his whereabouts should contact the EFCC or the nearest police station,” EFCC posted on their official Twitter account late Wednesday, August 3rd 2022.
Mompha has had several run-ins with the EFCC over the last few years and was arrested in January this year.
After being declared wanted, Mompha jumped on social media to deny being wanted and claimed to be the victim of a witchhunt.
“The fact that I was never absent in court, revoked my bail but fortunately the Judge again released me on a temporary basis and I was asked to appear in court a week after.
“All these facts especially the blackmail and intimidation by the EFCC made me come to the conclusion that I cannot get justice within this corrupt laden system as the EFCC was hell bent on extorting money from me for a crime I never committed,” Mompha attempted to explain his absence from court.
He added: “I want the general public to know I am not wanted by the EFCC but rather the court issued bench warrant for my production in court on the next court sitting.
“I didnt steal from anyone or involve in any money laundering still dont know why efcc are so jobless that they want to tarnish my image😡 last last na international court go settle this matter @officialefcc,”
