Reno Omokri, a former presidential aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, has blamed Nigerians over the escape of Nadeem Anjarwalla, a Binance executive. 

Chronicle NG reports that Anjarwalla, 38, escaped from the Abuja guest home where he and his colleague were being held on Friday, March 22, when guards brought him to a local mosque for prayers in honor of the ongoing Ramadan fast.

The Office of the National Security Adviser has confirmed that Anjarwalla, one of the two Binance executives arrested by the Federal Government, has escaped from detention.

The Briton, who also has Kenyan citizenship, is reported to have flown out of Abuja on a Middle Eastern airliner.

Reacting to the news of the escape of the Binance executive, Omokri, in a statement on X on Monday, alleged that “those who held powerful positions in Buhari’s government” are possibly behind Anjarwalla’s escape.

Noting that Nigerians “are powerful and influential people,” Omokri noted that “the threat to expose their names was just too much for them.”

Omokri also alleged that powerful people who held positions in Buhari’s administration, such as the ex-minister of Justice Abubakar Malami, “had an app for a cryptocurrency platform.”

Stating that “the guards on duty at the guest house are likely mere pawns,” Omokri alleged that someone like Malami will not “fold his hands while Nadeem Anjarwalla exposes Nigerians laundering money with crypto.”

Omokri’s statement reads, “It is the Nigerian citizens who, according to Yemi Cardoso, the CBN Governor, ferried $26 billion out of Nigeria in one year that would have organized the escape of Nadeem Anjarwalla from custody.

“They are powerful and influential people, and the threat to expose their names was just too much for them. The guards on duty at the guest house are likely mere pawns. The real culprits would be those who held powerful positions in Buhari’s government.

“Not that I am accusing him, but let us not forget so soon that when he announced that he had deleted his Twitter account after Buhari’s #TwitterBan, the then Minister of Justice, Abubakar

“Malami had an app for a cryptocurrency platform. And the funny thing is that the same Malami was enforcing Buhari’s ban on crypto. He was preventing ordinary people from trading in crypto, yet he had a crypto app on his phone.

“And you think someone like that will just sit down and fold his hands while Nadeem Anjarwalla exposes Nigerians laundering money with crypto?”
