Nigerian Big man, Mompha, has been in the news since Monday, after he was arrested by Anti-graft Agency, EFCC, on fraud charges.
Mompha was all smiles after he was arrested by the EFCC in Lagos state on October 18th. A video of him shortly after his arrest has surfaced online.

Meanwhile, Nigerian Lawyer and Entertainment Consultant, Ayo Shonaiya has lashed out at EFCC over what he describes as a ‘stupid move’ by the anti-graft agency for parading suspected fraudster, Mompha on social media before trial.
According to EFCC, Mompha was arrested on Friday, October 18, 2019 at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja on his way to Dubai following series of intelligence reports received by the Commission.
In his reaction to a video showing Mompha all smiles after he was arrested by the EFCC, Ayo Shonaiya said, ‘this is exactly how the EFCC will mess up the case. I don’t understand this nonsense media fixation of parading suspects before trial’.
What exactly is the point of this? Instead of them to take his mugshot and prepare a secured case based on strong evidence, they proceed on a stupid circus for the media that can even taint their case when it does get to Court. Just like the Nigeria Police did with Evans the Kidnapper, they turned the case into a media circus that has turned him into some sort of folk hero for people who don’t know the difference between real life and social media gist. This is a stupid move by the EFCC
