A video of Valentine Iro, one of the Nigerians indicted by the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for cyber-crime and money laundering, throwing a lavish party has surfaced on the internet.
On Thursday, the bureau had announced a massive bust of online fraudsters who are mostly Nigerians.
Nick Hanna, US attorney, said the fraud cases involved suspects conniving with federal and state agents to swindle unsuspecting victims of their money to the tune of $46 million.
In the undated video which surfaced online on Saturday, Iro is seen dancing with his partner as friends spray the couple with different denominations of diverse foreign currencies.
A mound of dollar bills is also seen on the floor.
Watch the video:
Iro is believed to be the first man on the FBI’s 80-man list.
Abike Dabiri-Erewa, chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), has asked citizens indicted in the FBI probe to voluntarily turn themselves in or risk being extradited to the US.
In a statement issued on Friday, she said while those fingered are still innocent until proven guilty, they should voluntarily turn themselves in to the US authorities to clear their names.
