Gambaryan, a former Crypto-Focused US Federal Agent and Binance employee, has taken legal action against the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the National Security Adviser (NSA) Nuhu Ribadu. He alleges that his fundamental human rights to liberty were violated when he was detained and his travel documents were seized.

Gambaryan’s lawsuit, filed on March 18, 2024, through his lawyer Olujoke Aliyu, demands his immediate release, the return of his travel documents, and an end to his detention regarding any investigations involving Binance. Additionally, he seeks a public apology for the ordeal.

The Other Detained Binance Employee Also Filed A Lawsuit against the EFCC

Similarly, another detained Binance employee, Nadeem Anjawarlla, also filed a lawsuit against the EFCC and NSA on March 26, 2024. However, his legal representation was withdrawn, as his lawyer informed the court. Anjawarlla was reported to have escaped custody after being taken to a nearby mosque to pray and is believed to have left the country via a Middle East Airliner.

The justice who presided over the case, Justice Ekwo stated, “It means that the applicant has no legal representation and requires that the matter be adjourned for the applicant to seek legal representation and for the respondents to be given an opportunity to come to court.”

What the Detained Binance Employee Has To Say About the Ordeal

Gambaryan, who remains in custody, has stated that he is an American citizen who willingly responded to the invitation from the EFCC and the Office of the National Security Adviser to discuss matters concerning Binance.

However, upon arrival, both he and his colleague, Anjawarlla, were detained without being informed of any personal charges against them.

The case between the security operatives and Gambaryan has been adjourned until April 8, 2024.
