The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) EFCC Head of Media, Wilson Uwujaren in a statement said Mompha was arrested on Monday, January 10, 2022 for “laundering funds” obtained through unlawful activities and retention of alleged proceeds of crime.

Mompha is alleged to have used his companies to receive illicit funds on behalf of ‘Yahoo Yahoo boys’ from across the world in return for commission/percentage.

In his first reaction, Bobrisky pledged allegiance to his friendship with Mompha indicating that he values friendship more than his life.

According to him, people are saying that he is rejoicing over Mompha’s arrest but that is rather the opposite as he is sympathizing with him praying for his release and vowed to stand with him to death.

Bobrisky wrote:

“I’m that friend that stand till death cos my friendship with you is d purest !!!!! I know wherever you are right now you are fine. Have always know you as a strong man not d weak. 

“Many people try everything to break us cos they don’t understand d friendship, well it’s their business and their opinion.
