Justice Mohammed Liman on Monday ordered that Ismaila Mustapha also known as Mompha, be kept in the custody of the Nigerian Correctional Services.
This follows after his appearance at the Federal High Court in Lagos over an alleged internet fraud and money laundering.
According to Channels Television, the suspected who was arraigned before the court by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, pleaded not guilty to charges leveled against him.
According to the charges read against Mompha by the EFCC counsel, Rotimi Oyedepo, it stated that the suspect laundered the sum of N33 billion through a firm which was the second defendant- Ismalob Global Investment Ltd- between 2015 and 2018.
However, further reports said the court fixed November 29 for hearing of the bail application filed by the defendant.
