On Friday, October 18, 2019, Mompha was arrested by the EFCC, while attempting to board a flight from Abuja to Dubai. He was remanded in custody over alleged fraud and money laundering, and was later granted N100M bail.
Mompha who regained his freedom after meeting bail conditions, is shedding more light on the charges billed against him. He wrote:
In every situation you find urself prayer is the only Key!! l was arrested on October 18, 2019, by Efcc, not Interpol or Fbi, No Interpol or Fbi is looking for me cos I don’t know where all these stories are coming from and the order of my arrest came from one of their head in Lagos because he has my travel details, which I asked what was my offence but he told me till u get to Lagos when I got to Lagos on October 19, 2019, he showed me my bank statement and ask me about the funds which came to my account btw 2015 to 2017 which I defended all.
To my greatest surprise, the next thing they did was to post that I was involved in internet fraud, BEC, cyber fraud and also 51 bank accounts which such never happened and it went viral worldwide what kind of country are we in nothing like investigation they tried to tarnish my image but God pass them, I was in their custody for 40days which no evidence of fraud was found on me.
After my lawyer sued them for keeping me for long on 22nd of November they gave me my charge sheet for 14 counts of money laundering 😳 on a Legit Business I did wit a mobile company in Nigeria Now I know its a crime to be a Nigerian, I was shock when I came out to see people calling me different names like fraudster, Criminal, Yahoo boy which I have never defraud anyone or steal from anyone also no petition on me or anyone or company reported me, They did this to me because of Hate, Enviness, Jealousy…
