A federal high court sitting in Lagos has condemned the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission(EFCC) for holding on to the belongings of popular social media celebrity, Mompha, known as Mustapha Ismaila.

Mompha is currently standing trial for alleged money laundering and internet-related fraud.

The presiding judge in his ruling held that it was wrong for the anti-graft agency to continue holding on to his belongings when they are not listed as exhibit.
