The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has re-arrested businessman and suspected internet fra#dster, Ismailia Mustapha better known as Mompha.
EFCC Head of Media, Wilson Uwujaren in a statement said Mompha was arrested on Monday, January 10, 2022 for “laundering funds” obtained through unlawful activities and retention of alleged proceeds of crime.
Mompha is already standing trial alongside his company, Ismalob Global Investment Limited. They face an amended 22-count charge bordering on cyber fr#ud and money laundering to the tune of N32.9billion.
Mompha was first nabbed on October 18, 2019 at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport while boarding an Emirates flight to Dubai. He was then taken into custody by the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) following a watchlist by the EFCC.
Mompha is alleged to have used his companies to receive illicit funds on behalf of ‘Yahoo Yahoo boys’ from across the world in return for commission/percentage.

Let My New Song Trend- Tubaba Begs Davido And Wizkid
Tubaba has jovially asked Wizkid and Davido not to take the shine away from his new single SMILE after their reconciliation monopolized social and mainstream media and tabloids.
Davido and Wizkid after feuding for years officially brought an end to their animosity after they were spotted in a viral video hugging and hanging around.
The two Afrobeat powerhouse were seen exchanging pleasantries as Starboy whispered into OBO’s ears while they hugged for a long time.
Reacting to this new development that has really excited music fans, Tubaba whose African Queen song produced two decades ago has assumed an iconic status in African music, said he’s extremely happy about this as it just put a smile on his face.
He however reminded them that their historic union has superseded the single previously mentioned song he just produced plus the corresponding music video.
He wrote; “This put a smile on my face but Abeg Una let my song and video trend small. Run up my numbers biko, no distractions.”
“How Don Jazzy Stopped Mo’hits Reunion In 2021” – D’banj
Popular Nigerian musician, Dapo Oyebanjo, aka D’banj said Mo’hit reunion was billed to happen in 2021 but Don Jazzy “moved it.”
D’banj said this shortly after he was unveiled as a judge for a music reality show, Nigerian Idol.
D’banj was asked if he would ever collaborate with Don Jazzy if there was a chance and he responded “If we are paid ‘big’ money.
Somebody wanted to pay us last year (2021) but it was Don Jazzy that moved it.
He won’t like that I said it was him but that is the truth. We are all connected in a group and they said we would do Mo’Hits Reunion but I was out of the country then.
But, Don Jazzy later said we should move it to 2022 so that we would do it bigger. So, it is Don Jazzy you should ask. We are still) friends.”
D’banj, who has never participated in any music reality show, noted that he accepted to be a judge in the competition because he believes in grooming and encouraging talents.
He said, “This is the first time I would be a judge (on a music reality show). I have done several things through the years but this is the first time I would be doing something like this.
“I accepted the offer because first, I am a Nigerian. Secondly, I think there is no better time than now because of the growth of the industry.
The growth of the industry is such that it is important for us to embrace what God has given us. This is a journey we have been on for over a decade and we have been accepted globally. That is why it is important to ‘grow’ what is on the ground.”
Mo’Hits Records (popularly called Mo’Hits) was a Nigeria-based music record label founded by D’banj and Don Jazzy
In March 2012, Don Jazzy confirmed that D’banj had left the group.
D’Banj’s reason for leaving was cited as difference in interests.
Don Jazzy went on to establish another record label known as Mavin Records
