Popular businessman Mompha has dragged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) as he describes them as useless.

The embattled socialite, who is facing charges of money laundering, called the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) Nigeria’s most corrupt and useless organization.

Mompha made this statement in response to the anti-graft agency’s most recent report, which quoted a witness as saying that N35 billion had been discovered in his account.

According to the report; “The sixth prosecution witness, PW6, Idi Musa, in the trial of Ismaila Mustapha, (a.k.a Mompha) an investigator with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Monday, July 1, 2024, told Justice Mojisola Dada of the Special Offences Court sitting in Ikeja, Lagos how the sum of N35bn was fou in two bank accounts linked to the defendant.

The Lagos Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, had, on January 12, 2022, arraigned Mompha alongside his company, Ismalob Global Investment Limited, on an eight-coun charge bordering on conspiracy to launder funds obtained through unlawful activity, retention of proceeds of criminal conduct, laundering of funds obtained through unlawful activity, failure to disclose assets and property, possession of documents containing false pretenses and use of property derive from unlawful act.”
