Ismaila Mustapha, the Nigerian socialite better known as Mompha, has fired back at the EFCC for asking him to prove his corruption claims against the agency.


Last week, a witness revealed that the anti-graft agency discovered up to N35 billion in bank accounts traced back to the socialite.

Mompha, who is facing trial for alleged money laundering to the tune of N6 billion, had described the EFCC as the “most corrupt agency in Nigeria”.

Reacting to the claim, the EFCC dared the socialite to provide evidence of corruption against its operatives.


Tackling the EFCC in an Instagram post, Mompha argued that the commission’s response to his Instagram post shows they are “jobless”.

He claimed the charges against him were “cooked up by some corrupt officials for personal gains”.

“My attention has once again been drawn to the social media tantrum of the efcc demanding that I prove corruption allegation against them,” he wrote.


“The fact that the commission, particularly their chairman could stoop so low to respond to my post shows clearly how useless, jobless the efcc is and how they waste taxpayers money on exchanging banters on social media.

“Now, I won’t bother to dwell on the trumped-up charges that was cooked up against me for personal gains by some of their corrupt officials and mere media trial because the fact speaks for itself but will rather dwell on how useless this commission under the leadership of the Chairman.

“Because why will the efcc on Friday, 5th of July, 2024 step outside of their constitutional duty and litter armed men on the streets of Lagos and Abuja all in the name of preventing citizens from protesting against the corruption being displayed by the Efcc, thereby infringing on their fundamental right to lawfully protest and preventing innocent citizens from going about their lawful business.

“Another example is beating up innocent citizens during their illegal and night raids ( we all saw what happened in Ondo state and recently in Lagos which the commission reluctantly admitted on its social media platform)


‘Now back to my case, the efcc claimed they have “overwhelming evidence of my involvement in money laundering”, however the question is; who is this faceless person I laundered money for?; does the person not have a name?; did you mention the name of the person in the trumped-up charges before the court?

“Your commission is clearly the one drowning and clutching to any straw, when they quickly rushed to the media to post one side of the evidence of your witness in court when he was yet to be cross examined just to gain social media trend with my name, whereas all he said in court were lies with no evidential proof, which would all come to light on the next court date. To confirm how useless they are again they will reply me again and i will be waiting with more proof.”

In 2022, the EFCC arraigned the socialite and his company Ismalob Global Investment Limited on an eight-count money laundering charge.

The charges include conspiracy to launder funds obtained through unlawful activity, retention of proceeds of criminal conduct, laundering of funds obtained through illegal activity, and failure to disclose assets and property.


The socialite, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.
