The arraignment is for eight fresh charges bordering on alleged money laundering to the tune of over N6 billion.

In the counts, the defendants were accused of conspiracy to launder funds obtained through unlawful activity, retention of such funds, and transfer of funds for a suspect named Olayinka Jimoh (better known as Nappy Boy).

Moreso, the EFCC alleged that Mompha hid his interest via expensive wristwatches and movable assets valued at over N70 million.

Mompha pleaded not guilty to the charges on behalf of his company. However, the judge ordered that the socialite be remanded in the custody of the EFCC till January 18 when his bail application will be heard.
