Binance Chief

By Onota Oghenevwede

The Federal Government of Nigeria has denied allegations that Binance executive, Tigran Gambaryan, is being held in poor prison conditions and that his health is deteriorating, stating that he has access to quality medical care and is being treated fairly.

Minister of Information and National Orientation,Mohammed Idris debunked the allegation in a statement on Friday June 21.

“We would like to state that these allegations are false and should be ignored. Gambaryan is being held in lawful detention and has access to quality medical care whenever required. He also has full access to consular services from his home government”.


“The Federal Government will not do anything to jeopardize his fundamental rights to lawful trial, and to quality care, including healthcare, even as he undergoes trial by the laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”

“It is worth reiterating that his detention is a court-ordered one, and only the court can alter the terms or direct his release.

“Furthermore,the Federal Government of Nigeria willcontinue to follow due process in its quest to bring Binance to justice — a legitimate sovereign quest that is similarly being pursued in several other countries around the world.


“This adherence to legal and diplomatic standards underscores Nigeria’s dedication to upholding justice and maintaining the integrity of its judicial processes. The executive is being treated with the utmost fairness, and his legal and human rights are being protected throughout the judicial proceedings”,he said.
