Embattled self-acclaimed bureau de change operator, Mompha, whose flamboyant lifestyle gained him popularity on Instagram, has been arrested by anti-graft operatives.
According to PREMIUM TIMES Mompha, whose real name is Mustapha Ismaila was arrested in connection to alleged graft.
Wilson Uwujaren, a spokesperson for the EFCC, confirmed Mr Mustapha had been taken into custody by anti-graft detectives, but declined to provide further details in the meantime.
The arrest was reportedly a joint operation between Interpol and the EFCC. But Umar Garba, Nigeria’s head of Interpol, told PREMIUM TIMES although he had learnt of the arrest, all enquiries should be treated by the EFCC as the primary law enforcement institution in charge of the investigation.
