U.S. lawmakers Rep. French Hill (R-Ark.) and Rep. Chrissy Houlahan (D-Penn.) visited Tigran Gambaryan in a Nigerian prison on Wednesday as the Binance executive remains incarcerated facing money-laundering charges due to his involvement with the crypto exchange.

Visiting the country to discuss anti-terrorism efforts,”we also had the opportunity to advocate for an American that’s been wrongfully detained by the Nigerian government in the horrible prison that we got to go see, that’s called Kuje prison,” Hill said in a video posted to his X account on Thursday.
