Escape Of Binance Executive: Reps Resolve To Investigate, Prosecute Persons Involved

0 270

The House of Representatives has resolved to investigate the circumstances that led to the escape of Binance executive from Nigeria on Friday, 22 March 2024.

This followed the adoption of a motion of urgent national importance moved by Hon Dennis Okafor during plenary in Abuja.

Okafor, in his prayers, on Wednesday, asked the relevant committees of the House to investigate and prosecute those responsible for the escape of the Binance executive from detention.

Recall that Nadeem Anjarwalla, one of the two Binance executives detained in Nigeria for alleged tax evasion and other offences, had escaped from lawful custody on Friday, 22 March, from the Abuja guest house where he and his colleague were detained after guards on duty led him to a nearby mosque for prayers during the Ramadan fast.

 

Following the hunt for the escapee, the lower chamber on Wednesday moved to investigate and prosecute those involved in the disappearance of Anjarwalla.
