Ismaila Mustapha, better known on instagram as Mompha, has vowed to sue the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over a libellous publication, according to him.
The EFCC had previously requested a Lagos court to dismiss the plea of a Lebanese national named Hamza Koudeih, who was seeking to go out of the country for mental treatment as part of a money laundering investigation against him.
Before Muslim Hassan of the federal high court in Ikoyi, Lagos, the anti-graft agency had prosecuted Koudeih and one Kayode Phillips as Mompha’s “money laundering accomplices.”
Mompha, however, sought the EFCC to retract the libellous accusation against him in a letter dated September 13 from his lawyers.
“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 instagram celebrity also threatened to sue the EFCC if it did not provide an unqualified apology within 14 days.
