Tigran Gambaryan is the present head of criminal investigation team - Binance. Nadeem Anjarwalla, on the other hand, is the regional manager for Binance Africa. These two high profile personnels entered Nigeria on February 25 in response to an invitation by Nigerian Government to seek solutions to the ongoing crisis regarding Binance's alleged unlawful operations that's allegedly manipulating the foreign exchange market; causing naira free fail against the United States dollar.

Since then, the two crypto-firm's executives have been detailed with no further information whether they will face criminal charges in the Federal Court of Nigeria.

According to the families of the detainees, no direct contact has been made to get in touch with their loved ones. "There’s no definite answer for anything: how he’s doing, what’s going to happen to him, when he’s coming back," Gambaryan’s wife, Yuki Gambaryan, reportedly said.

However, during this detention, Gambaryan was visited by a U.S. State Department official while Anjarwalla was visited by a representative of the UK foreign office. Gambaryan is a U.S citizen and Anjarwalla is a national of Kenya and United Kingdom. Gambaryan and Anjarwalla have access to a television and a balcony in detention.
