The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has fingered Internet celebrity, Ismaila Mustapha, alias Mompha in its amended charges against an automobile dealer, Sarumi Babafemi, alias 606.

Babafemi, alongside his companies, including 606 Autos Limited; 606 Music Limited; and Splash Off Entertainment Limited, have since November 1, 2019 been on trial in a five-count charge for allegedly laundering N207. 1million between 2013 and 2018.

However, in its amended nine counts marked FHC/L/CS/374c/2019, the EFCC accused Babafemi; Mompha; one Ridwan Allison, aka Osama, said to be at large; and Richard Ogbah of laundering the total sum of N157. 1m.

The anti-graft agency alleged that the beneficiaries of the funds, who are Omojadesola Allison; Olandewaju Oriyomi; Abiola Ayorinde; Bartholomew Ezeudoka and Amobi Uchenna E, received the sums of N37.6m; N93m; N1.5m and N25m respectively.

The EFCC accused Babafemi and his companies of concealing and disguising the origins of the funds he allegedly laundered for Mompha and others.

The offences, according to the EFCC, are contrary to sections 15(2)(b) and 15(3)(a) and punishable under section 15(3) of the Money laundering (prohibition) Act 2011 (as amended).

However, the re-arraignment of Babafemi could not take place on Monday as his counsel, Muiz Banire (SAN), opposed the EFCC’s application for re-arraignment on the grounds that he was being served the amended charge while in court.

Justice Chukwujekwu Aneke adjourned the matter till April 21, 22 and 23 for the re-arraignment and trial of Babafemi and his companies.
