A Federal High Court in Abuja has dismissed a fundamental rights enforcement suit filed by Nadeem Anjarwalla, Africa Regional Manager of Binance Holdings Limited, against the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the National Security Adviser.

Justice Ekwo, in a short ruling, dismissed the suit for lack of diligent prosecution as no lawyer appeared in court to represent the applicant.

Anjarwalla and his colleague, Tigran Gambaryan, had filed separate human rights enforcement suits against the EFCC and NSA, seeking an order to release them from detention. The court, however, granted leave for Gambaryan’s counsel to amend his client’s originating process.

Anjarwalla is currently at large after absconding from lawful custody on March 22, 2024, to Kenya.
