Socialite, Ismaila Mustapha popularly known as ‘Mompha’ has dissociated himself from disgraced fraudster, Ramon Olorunwa Abass a.k.a Hushpuppi.
Mompha, in a statement on his Instagram handle, also advised the public to discountenance the story, saying he was not involved in any way with Hushpuppi’s predicament.
His statement reads in part: “My attention has been drawn to the false publication on all social media platforms and online news tagged ‘Mompha: EFCC told me to maintain a low profile after hushpuppi’s arrest’ which is presently going viral.
“This has come as a great surprise to me, as I neither made such statement nor insinuated anything of such via any means or platform.
“I want to use this medium to categorically state that the statement currently circulating the social media and online space is false and devoid of any iota of truth.
“At no time whatsoever did EFCC or any member of its staff told me to maintain a low profile in relation to Hush’s arrest.
“I only made reference to a minor incident that occurred last year that resulted in me deleting my pictures and later reposting them which only has to do with my personal and private affair.
“Finally, I wish to also state that the charges filed against me by EFCC are in relation to allegations of operating BDC without a license and have nothing to do with or involving fraud. I am therefore not a fraudster or in any way associated with fraudsters”.
