Reacting to the development, a Twitter user @azeezsoneye99 asked the EFCC about Mompha’s whereabout.

He tweeted “Where are we on Mompha’s case? I @segalink @channelstv Why did @officialEFCC delete all posts relating to Mompha’s arrest. A random online post reveals that he’s settling (bribing) his way out. Clear the air in this pls @officialEFCC God bless Naija.”

EFCC has now responded saying;

“This information about Mompha “bribing” his way out is false and MUST be disregarded.

“Ismaila Mustapha A.K.A. Mompha is still being remanded on court orders and will soon be arraigned. #SayNoToCorruption #BeAccountable” EFCC tweeted.
