Justice Mojisola Dada ordered his remand after he was arraigned on an eight-count charge which borders on aiding internet fraud and being in possession of fraudulent documents. Mompha and his company, Global Investment Limited, were accused of conspiracy to launder funds obtained through unlawful activity, retention of such funds, transfer of funds for a suspect Jimoh Olayinka Dolapo a.k.a Nappy Boy – owner of NapTown records — and unlawful transfer of funds for a record label, among others.
