“Investigation has revealed a fraudulent transfer slip of $92, 412, 75 found in the suspect’s iPhone 8 device. He will soon be charged to court.”

Mompha is currently standing trial alongside his company, Ismalob Global Investment Limited, on an amended 22-count charge bordering on cyber fraud and money laundering to the tune of N32.9 billion brought against him by the EFCC.

The businessman was in October 18, 2019 arrested by the Nigeria Immigration Service at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport while boarding an Emirates Airline flight to Dubai, following a watchlist by the EFCC.
