According to the sources interviewed, Nadeem Anjarwalla was under surveillance alongside Tigran Gambaryan, head of financial crime compliance at Binance. The individual in question allegedly planned to escape from a “comfortable guest house” where he was allowed to use his personal phone.

Later, Binance's Africa regional director boarded a plane for an international flight from Abuja, the capital of Nigeria. Authorities do not know how the fugitive official was able to board an international flight. While his British passport is still in the hands of the Nigerian authorities to this day.

So it is possible that Angarwala used his Kenyan passport, but that would mean he obtained it somehow between his escape and his flight. The destination of his journey remains unknown at the time of writing.

Notably, a detention order against the fugitive official was issued for two weeks on February 28. The detention was later extended after Binance ignored a court request to transfer account information of some of its Nigerian clients.

The charges against the world's largest cryptocurrency exchange include allegations of non-payment of value-added tax, corporate tax and non-payment of tax returns. The platform is also accused of allowing its customers to evade taxes through various scams.

"(Binance) is obliged to pay taxes such as corporate income tax (CIT), as well as collect and remit value added tax (VAT). Since Binance has failed to comply these requirements, she therefore violated Nigerian laws and could have risked investigation and prosecution for this crime.
