Binance Facing Hardships In Nigeria Is Alleged To Pay $10 Billion Fine

Binance Untying with Nigeria 

Binance is a branded company that operates in a global market through a cryptocurrency exchange. It has recently winded up from Nigeria allocated on the western coast of Africa due to some regulatory issues and illicit business activities. 

Previously also Binance discontinued its crypto business in Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, the Philippines, the UK, and many other countries Binance is restricted or banned due to violating governmental regimes.

 On 27th February, the government of Nigeria suspected illicit transactions of Crypto and suspicious flow of exchanges at Binance. After the Investigation headed by the EFCC (Economic and Financial Crime Commission), slammed the exchanges and two Binance Executives, it turned out to be a scam. However, one executive is absconded and the other is not found guilty.

Binance Executive absconded from custody

In February, Binance Executive Nadeem Anjarwalla was accused of manipulating the country’s fiat currency (Naira) and after that, he was detained with the other executive (Tigran Gambrayan) in Nigeria. However, he escaped from Nigerian government custody and is hiding in Kenya that’s why the Kenyan police, as well as Interpol, have collaborated to bring him back into custody and to levy the charges imposed against him. However, there are no accurate shreds of evidence about him. 

He escaped on March 22, with a flight to the Nigerian Capital, Abuja. It’s still unclear how he boarded a flight with a Kenyan Passport. While in the custody of the Nigerian government, Anjarwalla absconded to the UK through an International flight even though his documents were detained by the Nigerian Government, earlier. 

The other Binance Executive Tigran Gambaryan was not found guilty and the allegations imposed on him were still in process where the case is adjourned until 19th April. His wife filed a petition to bring him back to the US, which had the signatures of 3373 petitioners at the time of publication.
