The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has declared Ismaila Mustapha, popularly known as Mompha, wanted.
The commission made this known in a statement via Twitter saying, “Anyone with useful information as to his whereabout should contact the EFCC or the nearest police station.
“Mompha is wanted in an alleged case of Retention of Proceeds of Criminal Conduct, Possession of Document Containing False Pretences, False Asset Declaration and Laundering of Proceeds of Unlawful Conduct.”
In June, a Lagos State Special Offences Court, Ikeja under the ruling of Justice Mojisola Dada area issued a bench warrant for the arrest of Mompha following his continued failure to present himself for his trial.
The anti-graft agency arrested Mompha on January 10 and arraigned him on January 12 alongside his company, Ismalob Global Investment Limited, on an eight-count charge of alleged money laundering of over N6billion.
He was however admitted to bail in the sum of N200 million with two sureties on January 18. The court ordered that one of the sureties must own property valued at N100 million within the jurisdiction of the court.
He was also ordered Mompha to return his international passport to the custody of the court while ordering his remand in any Correctional Centre of his choice in Lagos pending the perfection of the bail conditions.
The defendant was released to his lawyer, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Gboyega Oyewole after the court varied his bail conditions on March 28.
