Process for extradition of fleeing Binance chief, Anjarwalla, ongoing – INTERPOL


The International Criminal Police Organisation, INTERPOL, has said that the fleeing Binance chief, Nadeem Anjarwalla, would be smoked out and extradited to Nigeria to face tax evasion charges leveled against him by the Federal Government.

Anjarwalla escaped from custody after he and his colleague, Tigran Gambaryan, who is still in the custody of security agents were detained by the Nigerian government.

Vice President of INTERPOL (Africa) Executive Committee, Garba Umar, revealed plans to extradite the Binance executive while speaking on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily programme on Tuesday.

He said the paperwork for Anjarwalla to be returned to Nigeria has commenced, stressing that if a fugitive escapes, there are processes 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 rested 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 paper work,” Umar stated
