Mompha is listed as sought by EFCC.


Ismaila Mustapha, often known as Mompha, is a popular user of social media and has been proclaimed sought by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

On June 30, 2022, The PUNCH had reported that Mompha's absence had caused the Ikeja Special Offenses Court's Justice Mojisola Dada to postpone his alleged N6 billion money laundering trial.

Mustapha and his business, Ismalob Global Investment Ltd, were accused by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on eight counts relating to money laundering, conspiracy to launder money received through illicit activity, and laundering of money obtained through unlawful activity.

Other charges include failing to disclose assets, using assets obtained through illegal activity, possessing a document containing false pretences, and keeping the proceeds of criminal activity.

A bench warrant for Mustapha's arrest was issued by Justice Dada on June 22 as a result of his absence from court. Additionally, Dada nullified the defendant's bail. On June 16, the social media star missed court.

However, the anti-graft agency declared that the troubled social media star was wanted for an offence in a notice on Wednesday that was signed by its spokesperson, Wilson Uwajaren.

The notice stated: "The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is seeking ISMAILA MUSTAPHA, whose picture is displayed above, in connection with an alleged case of Retention of Proceeds of Criminal Conduct, Possession of Document Containing False Pretenses, False Asset Declaration, and Laundering of Proceeds of Unlawful Conduct.

Ismaila, 38, is an Ogbomosho Local Government Area native. His last known residence was at 21 Fagbenro Street in Idi-Araba, Surulere, Lagos State.
