“#BREAKING ???????? Nigerian Bureau De Change King @mompha #Skyman reportedly ARRESTED in Abuja by the International Police @interpol_hq I have left several messages.
Pls have patience. I’m an investigative Journalist. The arrest was 3 days ago the same time he posted last a picture of his Lil girl. Interpol should release a statement soon on WHY he was arrested and the exact whereabouts and whose custody he’s in. The @officialefcc said they will get back to me too.

See the leaked chat screenshot and tweet screenshot.
Although the EFCC has not made any public statement regarding Mompha’s arrest. One of the images above shows one tipster who suggests that Mompha’s arrest case is surrounding fraud which cannot be shoved under the carpet by the EFCC due to the INTERPOL’s involvement.
