FG To Arraign Binance, 2 Officials for Alleged Tax Evasion April 4

The Federal Government is set to prosecute Binance Holdings Limited and its two top officials, Tigran Gambaryan and Nadeem Anjarwalla, for alleged tax evasion on April 4th.

Gambaryan and Anjarwalla will face charges of tax evasion before Justice Emeka Nwite of the Federal High Court in Abuja, as outlined in a four-count charge.

Anjarwalla, who serves as Binance’s Africa regional manager, and Gambaryan, responsible for financial crime compliance at the cryptocurrency exchange platform, are both implicated in the case.

However, Anjarwalla, who was detained alongside Gambaryan, is reported to have escaped from custody, adding a twist to the legal proceedings.

He escaped on Friday from an Abuja guest house where the duo were detained after guards on duty led him to a nearby mosque for prayers.

The Briton, who also has Kenyan citizenship, has reportedly left Abuja through a Middle East airline.
