In a recent court proceeding, Ezekoli Ozoemenam, a compliance officer from Fidelity Bank, provided key testimony against social media celebrity Ismaila Mustapha, popularly known as Mompha. Mompha is facing charges related to the laundering of N6 billion. Ozoemenam, serving as the fourth prosecution witness, was led by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) counsel, Mr. Suleiman Suleiman, to testify about specific account details allegedly linked to Mompha. The prosecution presented documents related to these accounts and requested their admission as evidence, a move met with reserved objections from the defense counsel, Mr. Kolawole Salami.

Additionally, the EFCC counsel requested a witness summons to ensure the appearance of their next witness, who had expressed concerns about safety and reported receiving threats. Justice Mojisola Dada emphasized that it was the prosecution’s responsibility to secure the presence of their witnesses in court.

Mompha was notably absent from this court session, continuing a pattern of non-appearance that led to the initiation of his trial in absentia on June 3, 2023, starting with testimony from an Access Bank compliance officer. This followed a September 21, 2022, court order for his trial in absentia due to his repeated absences.

Mompha, along with his company Ismalob Global Investment Ltd., faces an eight-count charge brought forward by the EFCC on January 22, 2022. The charges include conspiracy to launder money obtained through unlawful activities, laundering money from unlawful activities, retaining proceeds of criminal conduct, using property derived from unlawful acts, possessing documents with false pretenses, and failing to disclose assets.

The court has adjourned the case to July 1 for the continuation of the trial..
