EFCC Takes over Binance Probe, Plans Fleeing Executive’s Extradition

The Economy and Financial Crimes Commission has charged Binance Holdings Limited and two of its senior executives, Tigran Gambaryan, and Nadeem Anjarwalla – who is on the run, with $35,400,000 money laundering.

EFCC, which has now fully taken over the case from the Office of the National Security Adviser, has also detained Gambaryan, and has obtained a court warrant to arrest and extradite the escapee Anjarwalla.

Newsmen confirm that the anti-graft commission is partnering with the International Criminal Police Organisation, the United States’ Federal Bureau of Investigation, the government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and the Kenyan government, to effect the arrest and extradition of Anjarwalla, the fugitive who fled from lawful custody in Nigeria.

Following the takeover of the investigation into the alleged financial irregularities committed by Binance, the EFCC has filed five-count charges bordering on money laundering against the cryptocurrency giant and two of its executives, Anjarwalla and Gambaryan.
