“As far as we are concerned, the EFCC is seeking to overreach the court because this is coming after we filed our no-case submission to the charges. When they had the opportunity to amend their charges they didn’t and they are claiming that there is a new charge.”

A spokes person from EFCC however said Mompha’s re-arrest is related to internet fraud.
