Famous Nigerian Instagram socialite, Ismail Mustapha known as Mompha, has reacted to fraud allegations of N157.1 million against him.
Reports had emerged hours ago that EFCC filed a fresh N157.1million fraud charge against Mompha alongside two suspects.
The suspects; Ridwan Momodu Allison (said to be at large) and Richard Ogbah alongside Mompha were accused of laundering N157.1 million.
They reportedly laundered money for Omojadesola Shittu Allison; Olandewaju Oriyomi; Abiola Kayode Ayorinde; Bartholomew Oluchukwu Ezeudoka and Amobi Uchenna E. who allegedly received the sums of N37.6 million; N93 million; N1.5 million and N25 million respectively.
But, reacting, Mompha took to his Instagram page to deny the allegation, describing it as false.
Alongside a screenshot of the news, Mompha warned those spreading ‘fake news’ to stop tarnishing his image.
“Why all these lies? Please stop tarnishing my image because none of this is true.
“Abeg I no want wahala ooo una won use my name trend (I don’t want trouble, don’t use my name to trend).
DAILY POST recalls that EFCC sometime in July 2020 prosecuted Mompha alongside his company, Ismalob Global Investment Limited, on an amended 22-count charge.
The charges border on cyber fraud and money laundering to the tune of N33billion.
