The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has reported Ismaila Mustapha, called Mompha, as a wanted person. Mompha is a well-known Instagram personality.

On Wednesday, the anti-graft bureau made this information public via its Twitter account. It has encouraged Nigerians who know Mompha's location to come forward or get in touch with the local police station.

EFCC wrote;

“Wanted by the EFCC: Ismaila Mustapha. Anyone with useful information as to his whereabouts should contact the EFCC or the nearest police station,” 

Mompha and his business, Ismalob Global Investment Ltd, were accused of fraud by the anti-graft agency.

On January 12, the EFCC charged the socialite and his business with N6 billion in fraud.

The EFCC indicted Mompha with conspiring to launder money earned through criminal conduct as well as committing fraud obtained via illicit activity in a new eight-count complaint.

Some include failing to reveal assets and properties, exploiting property obtained via illegal means, obtaining a document that contains false information, and keeping proceeds from criminal activity.

He was given a bail of N200 million, which he was unable to pay, but was eventually released from the EFCC's custody.

A Lagos court revoked the socialite's bail on June 22 as a result of his absence from the trial. On June 10, the commission accused the socialite of disobeying a court order and traveling to Dubai using a new passport.
