Federal High Court Abuja Dismisses Binance Executive’s Fundamental Rights Suit

Justice Inyang Ekwo of the Federal High Court in Abuja has dismissed a fundamental rights lawsuit filed by Nadeem Anjarwalla, a Binance executive, against the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA).

The dismissal was due to the absence of Anjarwalla’s legal team during the court proceedings

Anjarwalla sought a court declaration that his detention by Nigerian authorities was unlawful and requested compensation for the emotional and financial distress caused to him and his family.

However, his case faced a setback when his legal representative, Tonye Krukrubo, withdrew from the case without providing specific reasons.

This withdrawal followed reports that Anjarwalla had fled the country after his detention.

Krukrubo formally filed a “Notice of Withdrawal of Legal Representation,” leading Justice Ekwo to note that Anjarwalla no longer had legal counsel for his case.

The judge then adjourned the case to allow Anjarwalla time to secure new legal representation. Despite this, neither Anjarwalla nor any legal representatives appeared during the most recent court session.

As a result, Justice Ekwo issued an order to strike out the fundamental rights case, citing the absence of the parties involved.
