Prison authorities in Nigeria have refuted claims made by the family of Tigran Gambaryan, a Binance employee, stating that he is not seriously ill.

Despite concerns raised by his family about inadequate medical attention, officials assert that Gambaryan is receiving proper care and is in good health.

The Nigeria Correctional Service spokesperson assured that prisons are equipped with qualified medical personnel to manage inmates' health needs.

If necessary, inmates requiring specialised medical care are promptly referred to appropriate hospitals for further treatment.

This clarification comes amid ongoing scrutiny over conditions within Nigerian prisons and the treatment of inmates.
