Internet celebrity, Ismaila Mustapha, alias Mompha, was on Wednesday released by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

EFCC reveals Mompha's uncle have testified against him in court

He was released on bail about two weeks after he was re-arrested by the anti-graft

agency in Lagos.

His lawyer, Gboyega Oyewole, said Mompha had withdrawn the N5 million

fundamental rights suit he filed against the EFCC to challenge his re-arrest.

Mompha is standing trial alongside his company, Ismalob Global Investment Ltd,

on an amended 22-count charge bordering on cyber fraud and money laundering

to the tune of N33 billion.

He was arrested when he went to the EFCC office in Ikoyi, Lagos to reclaim his luxury possessions.

The items include five luxury wristwatches, an Apple iPod, an iPhone 8 device, and a

pair of sunglasses, which were among other items found on him when he was

arrested on October 19, 2019, in Abuja.

His visit to the EFCC office followed a July 24 ruling by Justice Mohammed Liman ordering the release of the items.
