Mompha threatens to sue EFCC for ‘libel’

by honest micah

Ismaila Mustapha, the internet celebrity better known as Mompha, has threatened to sue the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over what he claimed to be a libellous publication.

The EFCC had earlier asked a Lagos court to dismiss the application of one Hamza Koudeih, a Lebanese national, seeking to travel out of the country for psychiatric treatment amid the money laundering case against him.

The anti-graft agency had prosecuted Koudeih and one Kayode Phillips as “money laundering accomplices” of Mompha before Muslim Hassan of the federal high court in Ikoyi, Lagos.

But in a letter dated September 13 from his lawyers, Mompha asked the EFCC to retract the allegation against him, which he said was libellous.

“Our instruction is that via a recent online publication, the EFCC through its image maker, Wilson Uwujaren made a libellous and defamatory statement concerning our client, Mr Ismaila Mustapha,” the letter, signed by Gboyega Oyewole, Mompha’s counsel, read in part.

The socialite also threatened to file a lawsuit against the EFCC if it fails to tender an unreserved apology in 14 days.
