Binance executive, Gambaryan denied bail, to remain in Kuje Prison

Published

on

The Federal High Court has ordered an accelerated hearing in the trial of Gambaryan, who is facing money laundering charges brought by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). Justice Nwite, presiding over the case, had previously scheduled the ruling on the bail plea for Friday after hearing arguments from both the EFCC’s counsel, Ekele Iheanacho, and Gambaryan’s lawyer, Mark Mordi, SAN.

Gambaryan, who pleaded not guilty, has been remanded in Kuje Correctional Centre. The EFCC accuses Binance Holdings Limited, Gambaryan, and another agent, Nadeem Anjarwalla, of conspiring to conceal the origins of $35,400,000 derived from alleged unlawful activities in Nigeria. Anjarwalla reportedly escaped custody and fled to Kenya.

In the bail application, Mordi argued that there was no credible evidence to suggest Gambaryan was planning to escape, asserting that the EFCC’s allegations were unsubstantiated. He claimed that the notion of Gambaryan arranging to flee was false and unsupported by any exhibit or document.

Contrarily, Iheanacho argued that Gambaryan posed a flight risk, emphasizing that he had no ties to any community in Nigeria or a competent surety to vouch for him. Iheanacho also mentioned that Gambaryan attempted to apply for a new U.S. passport while in detention, despite his international passport being seized. He urged the court to dismiss the bail application or alternatively return Gambaryan to EFCC custody if bail were to be granted.

Justice Nwite, considering the arguments, opted for an expedited hearing of the case to address the concerns and proceed with the trial efficiently.
