Mompha and his company Ismalob Global Investment Ltd were arraigned by the commission over alleged N6 billion fr@ud on January 12. A fresh eight-count charge was brought against him.

He was remanded in the custody of the EFCC but later granted a bail of N200 million which he couldn’t fulfill. The bail sum was later slashed to N25 million.

The EFCC had, on June 10, accused Mompha of flouting a court order by traveling to Dubai with a new passport. On June 22, a Lagos court revoked the bail granted to him after his absence for trial.
