The International Criminal Police Organisation (INTERPOL) has stated that efforts are underway to extradite the fleeing Binance chief, Nadeem Anjarwalla, to Nigeria to face tax evasion charges brought against him by the Federal Government.

Anjarwalla escaped from custody after he and his colleague, Tigran Gambaryan, were detained by Nigerian authorities.

Garba Umar, Vice President of INTERPOL’s Africa Executive Committee, disclosed plans for Anjarwalla’s extradition while speaking on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily programme on Tuesday.
