Ismaila Mustapha, the internet celebrity better known as Mompha, has threatened to sue the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over what he claimed to be a libellous publication.

The EFCC had earlier asked a Lagos court to dismiss the application of one Hamza Koudeih, a Lebanese national, seeking to travel out of the country for psychiatric treatment amid the money laundering case against him.

The anti-graft agency had prosecuted Koudeih and one Kayode Phillips as “money laundering accomplices” of Mompha before Muslim Hassan of the federal high court in Ikoyi, Lagos.

But in a letter dated September 13 from his lawyers, Mompha asked the EFCC to retract the allegation against him, which he said was libellous.

“Our instruction is that via a recent online publication, the EFCC through its image maker, Wilson Uwujaren made a libellous and defamatory statement concerning our client, Mr Ismaila Mustapha,” the letter, signed by Gboyega Oyewole, Mompha’s counsel, read in part.

The socialite also threatened to file a lawsuit against the EFCC if it fails to tender an unreserved apology in 14 days.
