“Idan was not rearrested” – Mompha breaks silence amid claims of apprehension by EFCC

Billionaire businessman, Ismaila Mustapha, better known as Mompha has broken his silence amid rumours of being rearrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Lately, reports about the Dubai-based IG Bigboy getting apprehended by EFCC spread all over the media like wildfire which has now prompted a statement from him.

Reacting to the erroneous reports, Mompha while describing himself as an ‘IDAN’ noted that he was not arrested nor is he in Nigeria.

He berated the EFCC for trying to use his name to achieve cheap media relevance amid several sensitive issues in the country.

He also appreciated his fans and well-wishers concerned about his well-being and safety while reiterating that he and his family are currently in Dubai, UAE.

He wrote:


Contrary to the recent publication in most media platforms in Nigeria that I, Mompha was rearrested by the EFCC. I want to use this medium to expose the corrupt and mischievous commission again that I was neither rearrested nor am I in the custody of the EFCC. This assertion by the EFCC is laughable because I am currently not in Nigeria more or less rearrested either in Nigeria
I hereby urge the commission to desist from this insensible media trial and stop misleading people through the press/media that I am in your custody and would produce me before the Court on the 3rd of July.
It has now become very clear that the only motive of the EFCC is to witch-hunt me and use my name MOMPHA to trend anytime they are looking for cheap media relevance. One would think Mompha would be the least of their worries during this period of change in government, and occupy themselves with task of going after the corrupt politicians who are impoverishing the ordinary Nigerians.
I want to thank my teeming fans and well wishers, who are concerned about my wellbeing and safety and I want to assure you all that I and my family are fine and currently enjoying ourselves in Dubai, away from the intimidation and harassment of the EFCC and the corrupt Nigeria judicial system.”
