1 Min Read

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), on Saturday, challenged the Lagos socialite and internet celebrity, Ismaila Mustapha, popularly known as Mompha, to prove corruption allegations files against its operatives.

In a statement, a spokesman for the anti-graft agency Dele Oyewale described Mompha’s allegations as “malicious and unsubstantiated”.

“The claim, coming from an accused in a criminal trial for conspiracy to launder funds obtained through illegal activity, retention of proceeds of criminal activities, failure to disclose assets and property, ought to be ignored as the rantings of a sinking defendant. But his claims strike at the heart of the Commission’s most prized value-integrity and must be challenged,” the EFCC said.

“The Commission is alarmed that the accused will abandon the platform offered by the court to launch a media war against it through spurious claims.

However, the commission has challenged Mompha to come forward and bring “evidence of any issue of corruption against any staff of the Commission”.
