The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Friday July 17, presented its 10th witness against Ismaila Mustapha alias Mompha in an ongoing trial at the Federal High Court in Ikoyi, Lagos.
The Lagos Zonal Office of the Commission is prosecuting Mompha alongside his company, Ismalob Global Investment Limited on an amended 22-count charge, bordering on cyber fraud and money laundering to the tune of N33billion (Thirty Three Billion Naira).
Mompha’s uncle, Alhaji Ahmadu Mohammed was presented as the 10th prosecution witness (Pw10). He told the court that he and one other person are directors at Ismalob Global Investment Limited, but that Mompha was the sole signatory to the account of the company, domiciled in Fidelity Bank.
Ahmadu further disclosed that his job was to buy the Euro equivalent of the money sent to Mompha and send back in cash to the recipient, on Mompha’s directives.
The statement released by the EFCC read in part;
