What Nigerian Youths are saying over the arrest of Mompha suspected ‘Yahoo Yahoo Big Boy

News of the arrest of Ismaila Mustapha, a.k.a Mompha surfaced online on Tuesday after controversial Nigerian journalist, Kemi Olunloyo first shared the news on her Instagram page. Olunloyo said  Mompha was arrested in Abuja after he fled Dubai.

Olunloyo also claimed  that the arrest happened four days ago.

Some hours later, the EFCC confirmed the arrest. Twitter and other social media platforms went on fire, with comments comparing his arrest with that of Invictus boss, Obinwanne Okeke, who was arrested in the US in August.

Mompha, a social media celebrity, with about  650,000 followers on Instagram,  is often referred to as the king of Nigerian Bureau De Change. Some commenters on Tuesday  even said that  he had been competing with Ray, a.k.a  Hushpuppi, another flamboyant Nigerian who claims to be a real estate developer, with the way he spends money on luxuries.

Mompha  recently acquired the latest Rolls Royce Wraith Eagle viii 2020, claiming he’s the first African in the whole world and in the Middle East to buy the luxury whip.

Just relax, do not let Mompha and social media get you into trouble. Legit money does not grow on trees, only for fraudsters, hence Davido’s comment.

I hear Interpol has arrested Instagram ‘big boy’ Mompha. This is another reason why you shouldn’t believe everything you see on the gram. Another reason for you to enjoy your own pace, trust your own journey, work hard and make legit money.

I’ve always said that there’s no way Mompha’s money isn’t dirty. Person wey dey flex on hushpuppi. Change cars like cloth. Always flaunting millions in cash.

*Mompha allegedly arrested for fraud*

You go “omg can’t believe this, guys I look up to bla bla” you’re either dumb or an amazing pretender.

You can’t tell how Mompha, Hush, Joe e.t.c made their bones yet you feign surprise each time you hear they’re accused of illegality.

Had Pablo remained in his biz & influenced the politics of the day, he will still be here.
Had Frank Lucas refused his wife coat that night, the Feds wouldn’t have seen him.

Mompha & others need to watch lots of organized crime movies.
Stay low, off radar

Ogbuefi Okafor🇳🇬@MistaChika

Just when mompha thought he has escaped interpol, he ran into EFCC not knowing that interpol scare is a bait.

By now, the bigwigs at EFCC have started sharing his properties amongst themselves even before they confiscate it.

Be cautious, scam is never the way.

Even if you do Blood money, Ifa can’t afford the kind of money that Mompha has. It’s almost impossible to tell me there isn’t illegal shit involved. Probably laundering. All he had to do was stay lowkey but no.
