Binance Executive Fled: Nadeem Anjarwalla Allegedly Escaped Using Fake Passport

Crypto News – A local website has alleged that Nadeem Anjarwalla, a Binance executive who was arrested by the Nigerian police, managed to get out of custody by using a forged passport.

Binance Executive Fled: Nadeem Anjarwalla Allegedly Escaped Using Fake Passport

The announcement coincides with rumors that the Nigerian government has opened criminal cases against the exchange for tax evasion. The accusations were brought on Monday in the Federal High Court in Abuja, according to the local media.

For several weeks, Nadeem Anjarwalla, an executive at Binance, and Tigran Gambaryan, his colleague, have been held captive in a guest house located in Abuja, the capital of Nigeria. Anjarwalla was transported to a neighboring mosque for prayers on Friday, March 22, but it is believed that he then escaped from custody. Anjarwalla allegedly boarded a Middle Eastern carrier and took off from Abuja. He entered Nigeria with a British passport, which is still being held by Nigerian police, so it’s unknown how he was able to board the international flight.

Binance Says It Cooperates With Nigerian Government

Upon their arrival in Nigeria on February 26, Anjarwalla, the regional manager of Binance in Africa, and Gambaryan, an American citizen leading Binance‘s criminal investigations team, were placed under arrest. Reports state that the men were allowed to use cell phones, among other perks, while in custody.

We were made aware that Nadeem is no longer in Nigerian custody. Our primary focus remains on the safety of our employees and we are working collaboratively with Nigerian authorities to quickly resolve this issue,
