Tigran Gambaryan, Binance’s Head of Financial Crime Compliance, has arrived at the Federal High Court in Abuja to face tax evasion charges.

He and the fleeing Nadeem Anjarwalla are set to be arraigned today in court.

Binance was charged in the FHC/ABJ/CR/115/2024 action of neglecting to register with the Federal Inland Revenue Service, or FIRS, in order to pay the appropriate taxes managed by the service.

Report has it that Gambaryan and Nadeem Anjarwalla, Binance’s Regional Manager for Africa, were detained by Nigerian officials on February 28.

Although Anjarwalla has escaped from the Office of the National Security Adviser’s (ONSA) custody, both executives, as well as Binance, are anticipated to face tax evasion and money laundering charges in court on Thursday.

Gambaryan, dressed in a black T-shirt and green trousers, was taken into court about 9:19 a.m. by Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) agents.
