Popular Nigerian Socialite Mompha has said that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) advised him to lie low after the arrest of Hushpuppi who recently pleaded guilty to online fraud.
Mompha made this revelation during an Instagram live session with OAP Daddy Freeze over the weekend. Mompha disclosed that he was advised by the anti-graft agency to delete his social media page and maintain a low profile after the arrest of Hushpuppi.
Mompha blamed the Nigerian-Dubai-based Big Boy Hushpuppi for his own arrest. According to him, Hushpuppi was stubborn and his high-handedness.
When you are big, you are big. I was with FBI agents one-on-one on October 19, 2020. They questioned me but couldn’t find any incriminating evidence.
”Remember that I was the one that brought Hushpuppi from Malaysia, since his arrest, people on social media have said that I will be arrested next. Some even go as far as tagging EFCC and FBI”.
”On the day Hush was arrested, I received a lot of calls and tags from different people. EFCC had to call me directly to close down my social media and maintain a low profile”.
”My case with EFCC was because someone felt the need to punish a big boy like me, all because of BDC’. Nigerians on social media love to gossip and bad luck for rich people. And it’s not my fault that I come from a rich home, I have even hustled all my life.”
