The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC on Wednesday, August 26th, released Nigerian social media celeb, Ismaila Mustapha alias Mompha, about two weeks after he was re-arrested by the anti-graft agency in Lagos.

Mompha was re-arrested on Friday, August 14 after he went to the EFCC office in Ikoyi, Lagos to reclaim his five wristwatches, an Apple Air pod, one iPhone 8 mobile phone and a pair of sunglasses, seized by the EFCC operatives last October.

Following an application by his lawyer, Gboyega Oyewole (SAN), Justice Mohammed Liman had on July 24 ordered the EFCC to release the items to Mompha.

Mompha went to the EFCC to recover his item and had barely left the commission’s premises when the operatives accosted him and took him into custody. EFCC spokesperson, Dele Oyewale, said Mompha’s re-arrest was connected to a fresh set of cyber fraud charges.

Confirming his release, his lawyer, Gboyega Oyewole (SAN), said Mompha has also withdrawn the N5 million fundamental rights suit he filed against the EFCC to challenge his re-arrest.
