Binance CEO Condemns Nigerian Officials’ Covert Settlement


Binance CEO Denounces Nigerian Authorities’ Mistreatment of Crypto Exchange Executives

The ongoing saga between Binance, one of the world’s largest crypto exchanges, and Nigerian authorities has taken a concerning turn as CEO Richard Teng denounces the mistreatment of executives, including the still-detained Tigran Gambaryan. Teng has highlighted the implications of this crackdown on the business community, calling attention to the abuse of power by Nigerian regulators.

According to Binance’s point of view, the tension escalated after the arrest of Gambaryan and the Head of Binance Africa, Nadeem Anjarwalla. The exchange claims to have proactively sought guidance from Nigerian regulators regarding new regulations but received no response. The situation worsened when Binance representatives were allegedly asked to make a significant payment in cryptocurrency to settle unspecified allegations.

The CEO shared a detailed timeline of events, including Gambaryan’s efforts to combat financial crime globally. Despite Gambaryan’s expertise in financial crime compliance, he was detained by Nigerian authorities on accusations of terrorist financing and money laundering. Teng believes that the Nigerian government’s actions set a dangerous precedent for companies worldwide.

As the controversy continues, Nigeria has denied Binance’s claims of bribery, further escalating the conflict between the crypto exchange and the authorities. The situation raises concerns about the treatment of executives and the impact on the global business community. Binance’s CEO remains committed to seeking justice for the detained executives and addressing the implications of Nigeria’s crackdown on the crypto industry.
