Nadeem Anjarwalla, Binance
The Federal Government has entered into talks with the International Police Organisation (INTERPOL), in a bid to extradite one of the Binance Holdings Limited executives, Nadeem Anjarwall, who escaped from detention in Nigeria last month.

This is as the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) concludes plans to prosecute the executives of crypto-currency firm on Thursday.

Anjarwalla was arrested in February alongside another Binance executive, Tigran Gambaryan, over alleged $35,400,000 money laundering, among other charges.

The two executives were detained in a supposed safe house in Abuja on the order of the National Security Adviser, Nuhu Ribadu, pending when they would be charged at the Federal High Court, Abuja..

But on March 22, Anjarwalla, a British citizen, slipped away from his guards following a Ramadan prayer service at a nearby Mosque.

However, the Nigerian government is said to be in advanced talks with the international police to finalize moves to extradite Anjarwalla to Nigeria to face the charges against him.

Top government sources however, noted that Anjarwalla’s absence would not affect the arraignment of Binance and Gambaryan over the five-count money laundering charge.

“Mr Anjarwalla’s extradition process has begun. The Federal Government is working as did with INTERPOL to extradite the fugitive to Nigeria. He’s a fugitive that escaped from lawful custody, and his other partner is still in custody and would be arraigned on Thursday alongside their company, Binance.

“It is true that the Federal Government has commenced the process of extraditing Binance’ Anjarwalla in order to bring him back to Nigeria to answer to his money laundering case in court, among others. The arraignment of Binance and Gambaryan in court on Thursday will also aide Anjarwalla’s extradition,” Punch reports, citing a government source.
