Popular Nigerian socialite and supposed BDC operator, Ismaila Mustapha, aka Mompha, has been rearrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over alleged money laundering.

Mompha is currently facing money laundering charges before the Federal High Court — it was revealed that he was re-arrested last Friday when he went to the EFCC office in Ikoyi, Lagos

He was at the office to reclaim his five wristwatches, one Apple Air pod, one iPhone 8 mobile phones and one pair of sunglasses seized from him by the anti-graft agency, following a court order.

According to reports, Mompha had barely left the premises of the EFCC office after collecting the items, when operatives of the anti-graft agency waylaid him and returned him into custody.

His lawyer, Oyewole, confirmed the re -arrest, vowing to challenge it in court, according to Punch.

Oyewole said;

“I am filing processes tomorrow (Tuesday); they didn’t tell us why they are detaining him . They have not told us the basis for this re-arrest.

“As far as we are concerned, the EFCC is seeking to overreach the court because this is coming after we filed our no-case submission to the charges. “When they had the opportunity to amend their charges they didn’t and they are claiming that there is a new charge.”

EFCC spokesman, Dele Oyewale said; “The fresh arrest is unconnected to the existing charges in court. It is related to Internet fraud.”
