The Office of the National Security Adviser, has called on the public and the international community to provide information that can assist law enforcement agencies in apprehending the Executive Manager of Binance for the African region, Nadeem Anjarwalla, who escaped from detention.

Head of Strategic Communication, Zakari Mijinyawa, who made the call, said a manhunt had been launched for Anjarwalla’s re-arrest.

He said the personnel responsible for the custody of the suspect have been arrested, and a thorough investigation is ongoing to unravel the circumstances that led to his escape from lawful detention.

Reports said 38-year-old Anjarwalla, who was detained by Nigerian authorities on allegations of tax evasion and other charges, fled on Friday, from a guest house in Abuja where he and a colleague were being held.

Anjarwalla, and another Binance executive, Tigran Gambaryan, were arrested and detained on their arrival in Nigeria on February 26th, resulting in a series of legal actions against them and the cryptocurrency exchange.
