Former DSS Assistant Director Criticizes Handling of Fleeing Binance Executive

Dennis Amachree, a former Assistant Director of the Department of State Services (DSS), has criticized the Office of the National Security Adviser (NSA) for its handling of the fleeing Binance executive, Nadeem Anjarwalla. In an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today, Amachree suggested that the NSA should have transferred Anjarwalla to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) or the DSS for custody.

Amachree highlighted the lack of a detention facility within the Office of the NSA, stating that it is not a security agency. He emphasized that suspects like Anjarwalla should have been placed on a watch-list when they were initially detained in Abuja in late February, along with his colleague Tigran Gambaryan.

Expressing concern over the circumstances of Anjarwalla’s escape, Amachree questioned why he was allowed access to a mosque for prayers while in custody at a guest house, where he subsequently disappeared. He pointed out what he perceived as loopholes and lapses in the security protocols surrounding Anjarwalla’s detention.

Amachree suggested that there may have been collusion between Anjarwalla and certain security agents, emphasizing the need for thorough interrogation of those involved to uncover any potential corruption.
