I’ve always said that there’s no way Mompha’s money isn’t dirty. Person wey dey flex on hushpuppi. Change cars like cloth. Always flaunting millions in cash.
People wey dey use their mama do ritual sef no do reach like this.

In case you don’t know Mompha but you know Hushpuppi.
Hushpuppi money dey crawl beside mompha’s

Even if you do Blood money, Ifa can't afford the kind of money that Mompha has. It's almost impossible to tell me there isn't illegal shit involved. Probably laundering. All he had to do was stay lowkey but no.

Thanks interpol @INTERPOL_HQ for arresting mompha. People like him are toxic to this present set of generation. It will be great to check those people who display opulent lives on Instagram, yet we don't know the source of their money. People like hushpuppi, e something, etc

? ? ? Look if Interpol takes down Mompha who's apparently the biggest fish.. Everyone and their mom is going down. On God! From Woodberry and Hushpuppi down to Aremo gucci and Aboki wire ? ? ?

Mompha was drawn into reckless show off and competition with hushpuppi. Did he forget the country he was in?
— Penguin (@Aeeshamoh) October 22, 2019
You made millions of dollars illegally but you decided to flaunt rather than stay low-key means you're putting yourself on the radar of financial crimes agencies. Mompha is gone, Hushpuppi is next. All these fake motivational quotes droppers with no business to trace wealth to. pic.twitter.com/riIU4VR0L3

Mompha will be like “I don’t care about billionaire Gucci master, I don’t care about aremu nor do I give a fuck about aboki, you can take all from those suckers as long as my babies still got milk and honey” #snicthMode billionaires informer lobatan ?

Mompha Extravagant spending was what got him into this mess right now. All he had to do was avoid The whole social media thing, but No he didn't.

If you have been asking "God When" to Mompha's standard of life and lifestyle please don't hesitate to ask 'God When" to his current condition and location. All equations must be balanced.

Lmao if you're a Yahoo boy, just know your file is on the table of FBI.
They're just gathering information on how they will pick you up.
They are currently going after big fishes.
From Invictus to Mompha to S.P to y'all
No single person would be exempted.
They have your records.
— Anambra 1st son? (@UchePOkoye) October 22, 2019
Just when mompha thought he has escaped interpol, he ran into EFCC not knowing that interpol scare is a bait.
By now, the bigwigs at EFCC have started sharing his properties amongst themselves even before they confiscate it.
Be cautious, scam is never the way.
— Ogbuefi Okafor?? (@MistaChika) October 22, 2019
I saw a YouTube video of 10 yahoo boys on Nigeria
…and i asked myself, how did these people get their names, pictures and videos and EFCC are yet to act..
Well, Mompha is on the list https://t.co/Ne8CVKQvB3

I will never understand the ostentatious display of wealth on social media by people like Mompha and Hushpuppy despite their questionable wealth.
They're obviously not on Forbes richest 500 list yet drag so much attention to themselves.
Interpol ain't EFCC.
