A Federal High Court in Lagos has dismissed a “no- case application” filed by internet sensation, Ismaila Mustapha better known as Mompha.
The socialite who is currently standing trial over an alleged N32.9 billion internet fraud and currently facing a 22 count criminal charge bordering on money laundering alongside his co defendant, Ismalob Global Investment Limited, were directed to open their defence.
The presiding judge, Justice Mohammed Liman said the court is convinced that the prosecution has established a prima facie case against the defendants with evidence and testimonies presented, and will want them to give an explanation.
This is coming after Mompha took to his Instagram page to express hope of all his challenges becoming a thing of the past.
The socialite described his return to his country, Nigeria as a disaster.
In his words,
“2 years ago when you don’t knw coming to ur country will be a disaster. Surely it will all come to past”
