EFCC operatives and Mompha





Famous Nigerian businessman, Ismaila Mustapha, popularly known as Mompha, has described the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), as a “useless” and corrupt government agency.

The troubled social media socialite, who is on trial for alleged money laundering, characterized the EFCC as the most ineffective and dishonest organization in Nigeria.

Mompha’s outburst was in response to the EFCC’s recent report that a staggering N35 billion was discovered in his bank account.

A prosecution witness, Idi Musa and an investigator with the EFCC testified in court during the week that the money was found in two bank accounts linked to Mompha.
