A Federal High Court has dismissed a ‘no case’ application filed by Instagram Big Boy, Mr. Ismail Mustapha, aka Mompha, who is facing a N32.9 billion fraud charge.
During the court hearing in Lagos on Thursday, Justice Mohammed Liman held that the evidence and testimonies of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) witnesses established a prima facie case against
Mompha, requiring him to explain himself.
The presiding judge directed Mompha and his co-defendant to open their defence on March 10.
Mustapha, alias Mompha, and his firm, Ismalob Global Investment Ltd, were on March 4, 2020 re-arraigned before Liman on 22 counts of alleged money laundering and cyber fraud.
