A quick search on the social network for the name ‘MOMPHA’ which was a verified account prior to his arrest no longer yields any result from the search query.
Prior to his arrest by the EFCC, Mompha was notoriously famous on Instagram for showing off his exotic cars, big boy lifestyle among other things which endeared many Nigerians who were always in his comment section begging for one thing or another.
Apparently, it got to the notice of the authorities and a stealth investigation was carried out on the real source of his wealth.
Mompha was arrested mid-october and the charges leveled against him are damning .
“Mustapha allegedly perpetrates his fraudulent activities under the cover of being a Bureau de Change operator, to launder his proceeds of crime,” the EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren had said during the time of his arrest.
