There is an arrest warrant for Bobrisky’s alleged married lover, Mompha, over a 6 billion naira fraud.
This comes hours after Mompha roared at the Nigerian justice system.
On Wednesday, Ismaila Mustapha alias Mompha, a suspected internet fraudster, was the subject of a bench warrant issued by Justice Mojisola Dada of a Special Offences Court in Ikeja.
Mompha is being prosecuted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on eight counts of conspiracy and money laundering involving more than N6 billion. He is being tried in conjunction with Ismalob Global Investment Limited, his business.
Mompha was detained by the EFCC on January 10 but released on bail after being charged.
However, the defendant has failed to appear in court on two scheduled dates for his trial. At the last adjourned date, the defendant’s matter could not proceed due to his absence.
At the resumption of proceedings on Wednesday, the judge stood down the matter for a while, expecting the defendant’s arrival, yet Mompha failed to appear in court. The EFCC lead counsel, Rotimi Oyedepo, asked the court for another stand down, but the judge returned the request. She asked, “Where is the defendant?”
Addressing the court, Mr Oyedepo told the court that the development shocked him. He urged the court to allow the defence to speak to his client and put him on the speaker to confirm the position of things. The judge was dissatisfied with the excuse given by Mompha’s counsel.
The prosecution counsel, Mr Oyedepo, then urged the court to order Mompha’s arrest. “My Lord should issue a warrant of arrest on the production of the defendant before your lordship,” he said. Subsequently, Justice Dada revoked the defendant’s bail and ordered his arrest. She adjourned further proceedings till June 30.
Mompha was rumored to be cross dresser, Bobrisky’s lover, after the duo fought dirty online and revealed nasty things about themselves.
Court Orders Mompha’s Arrest!!!
