Mompha

The Federal High Court in Lagos has fixed December 9 as the date to rule on a no-case submission filed by internet celebrity Ismaila Mustapha a.k.a Mompha, who is currently standing trial for allegedly laundering N32.9 billion fraud.

Justice Mohammed Liman who had earlier scheduled the ruling for Wednesday November 18, told both parties that the ruling was not ready.

Recall that Mompha had pleaded not guilty after being arraigned alongside a firm, Ismalob Global Investment Ltd on 22 counts in which they were accused of laundering an aggregate of N32.95bn between 2015 and 2018.

While the EFCC stressed that Mompha and Ismalob Global Investment Limited violated sections 5 and 29(1)(c) of the Foreign Exchange Monitoring and Miscellaneous (Provisions) Act Cap F34 LFN 2004 and also committed offences contrary to Section 18(c), 15(2)(d), 15(3) and Section 10 of the Money Laundering (Prohibition) Act, Mompha through his lawyer, Mr Gboyega Oyewole (SAN) said the anti-graft agency failed to establish a prima facie case against him.

He urged the court to dismiss the charges while the EFCC opposed his prayer.

Former aide, Reno Omokri has taken to Instagram to throw jabs at women who bleached their skin and surgically enhanced their bodies.



Using former Miss World, Agbani Darego-Danjuma as an example, the former presidential aide averred that women do not have to bleach or undergo surgical enhancement to be pretty.

According to him, Agbani did not bleach her skin or undergo surgical procedure and she still ended up getting married, having a child, and is a ”source of joy to herself and her race.”

His post reads:

”When you bleach and surgically enhance your body, you are not just saying ‘I hate myself’, you also teach young dark skinned girls to likewise hate themselves. No matter how many rich old men date you, you remain a danger to yourself and society! Love your dark skin. Live a life worthy of emulation. Look at your photos before you bleached. You were the epitome of beauty. A natural African woman. You do not need to be light skinned and have surgically enhanced features to be loved. You were already lovely. Look at @AgbaniDarego. The first and only Nigerian to win the Miss World Pageant. Black and beautiful. She did not bleach or surgically enhance herself. Yet, she is married, has a child, and is a thing of joy to herself and her race. A beacon of virtue and pride to the Black Race. Young Black girls can look at her and feel beautiful. Black is Beautiful. Say it with me-I’m Black and I am proud!”
