Mr Gambaryan, a US citizen overseeing financial crime compliance at the crypto exchange platform, in his application, sought a declaration that his detention and seizure of his international travel passport contravened Section 35 (1) and (4) of the Nigerian Constitution.

He said the act amounted to a violation of his fundamental right to personal liberty as guaranteed by the Constitution. He also sought an order directing the respondents to release him from their custody and return his international travel passport with immediate effect.
