Process To Extradite Fleeing Binance Chief Anjarwalla Ongoing – INTERPOL


The International Criminal Police Organisation (INTERPOL) has said that the fleeing Biance Regional Manager for Africa, Nadeem Anjarwalla will be smoked out and extradited to Nigeria to face tax evasion charges leveled against him and his colleague, Tigran Gambaryan, who is still in the custody of security agents in Abuja.

Garba Umar, Vice President of INTERPOL (Africa) Executive Committee, made this known on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily programme on Tuesday, April 30.

The Nation had reported that Anjarwalla escaped from a Nigerian detention facility on Friday, March 22, and was arrested by Kenya Police Service while he was hiding in the East African country on Monday, April 22.

Umar said the paperwork for Anjarwalla to be returned to Nigeria has commenced.

He said: “If a fugitive escapes, there are processes in which that country will follow, INTERPOL will only give information, assist them and inform them about the bilateral agreements and conventions that were signed to extradite a fleeing fugitive and the process is ongoing and Nadeem is not an exception.

“Be rest assured, we have all the cooperation, and we are working on it and definitely, one day, he will be brought to justice, it’s just a matter of time. We have done all the paperwork.”
