A Special Offences Court, Ikeja, on Wednesday, issued a bench warrant for the arrest of suspected internet fraudster Ismaila Mustapha known as Mompha. Valcke, who until 2015 was the right-hand man of now ousted FIFA president Sepp Blatter, faces the bulk of the charges linked to two separate cases of television rights corruption. Army spokesman, Brig. The Frenchman stands accused of wanting to transfer the Middle East and North Africa rights for screening the 2026 and 2030 World Cups to beIN Media, in exchange for “unwarranted benefits” from Al-Khelaifi. The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is prosecuting Mompha on an 8-count charge of conspiracy and money laundering of over N6 billion. According to the prosecution, the case relates to a meeting on October 24, 2013, at the French headquarters of beIN, when Al-Khelaifi allegedly promised to buy a villa in Sardinia for five million euros ($5.

A thorough search conducted on the vehicle revealed it was conveying 72 Improvised Explosive Device chargers, 121 Dynamite Liquid, 200 rounds of 7. Al-Khelaifi was then to hand the property over to the Frenchman two years later under certain conditions. Al-Khelaifi denies buying the property in question or promising it to Valcke. The EFCC lead counsel, Rotimi Oyedepo, asked the court for another stand down, but the judge returned the request. In return, the prosecution claimed, Valcke committed to “do what was in his power” to ensure beIN would become the regional broadcaster for the two World Cups, something which happened on April 29, 2014, in an agreement that FIFA has never since contested. “Other items recovered in the intercepted vehicle are military uniforms and kits. Valcke also stood accused of exploiting his position at FIFA between 2013 and 2015 to influence the awarding of media rights for Italy and Greece for various World Cup and other tournaments scheduled between 2018 and 2030 “in order to favour media partners that he preferred” in exchange for payments from Greek businessman Dinos Deris, who has also been charged.
