Some of the suspects arrested were seen in a viral video in late August standing on top of their cars and throwing Naira notes into the air in front of Kada Cinema in Benin City, causing a stampede among passersby.

EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, in a statement issued on Monday, said that the suspects were arrested in two separate locations in Benin following actionable intelligence reports received on the activities of the suspected fraudsters.
