April 3, 2024 10:30 am Comments

Nigeria has doubled down in its legal claims against Binance following the escape of Binance executive Nadeem Anjarwalla.

According to the latest reports, Nigeria has tapped Interpol to aid in the search and extradition of Anjarwalla to Nigeria so he can appear before the courts and face the charges against him.

Additionally, the government of Nigeria has levied more charges against both Binance executives.

During the entire unfolding saga, Binance has attempted to foster dialogue between the company and the government of Nigeria, while imploring Nigeria to let its executives go in peace.

Nigeria continues to maintain that the business activities of Binance crashed their fiat currency, though nothing could be farther from the truth. Here’s more information about the latest updates in this developing story:

Decrypt dissected statements from several different sources and confirmed:

A second unnamed source stated that the extradition aimed to bring Anjarwalla back to Nigeria to “answer to his money laundering case in court,” after the executive escaped detention and fled the country last month.

Former Nigerian officials speculated that Nadeem Anjarwalla bribed the guards tasked with keeping him detained to escape from Nigerian custody and stage his exit from the African country.

Coin Telegraph reports:

Nigeria has introduced more charges against Binance despite the exchange trying to find dialogue with local regulators. Bayo Onanuga, the presidential adviser on information and strategy, suggested banning platforms like Binance in the country.
