Binance Exec's Wife Denies Report Of Extradition To Nigeria by BannedUser: 12:44pm On Apr 23

The wife of Nadeem Anjarwalla, an executive at Binance who was caught in the crypto exchange's scuffle with Nigeria, has denied reports of his arrest in Kenya and subsequent extradition back to Nigeria.
Nigerian authorities have found Anjarwalla in Kenya and are working with Kenyan authorities to bring the executive back to the country, Nigeria’s Daily Post reported last week, citing government sources. Nigerian newspaper The Punch reported on Monday, citing unnamed government sources, that Anjarwalla could be returned to Nigeria within the week via the international criminal police organization (INTERPOL).
However, a spokesperson for Anjarwalla's wife has dismissed the Punch report of his arrest as false.
CoinDesk has reached out to INTERPOL, Kenya’s foreign ministry and Nigeria’s police force for comment.

Anjarwalla was detained alongside another Binance executive, Tigran Gambaryan, in February, as Nigerian authorities accused the crypto exchange of manipulating the local exchange rate, tax evasion and money laundering.
Anjarwalla, a British-Kenyan dual national, reportedly fled the country in March using a concealed Kenyan passport. Gambaryan, still in Nigeria, pleaded not guilty to money laundering charges during an April court appearance.

UPDATE (April 22, 13:10 UTC): Updates headline and story with the statement from a spokesperson for Anjarwalla's wife.
