“The website is soliciting the Nigerian public to trade crypto assets on its various web and mobile-enabled platforms.
“Binance Nigeria Limited is neither registered nor regulated by the Commission, and its operations in Nigeria are therefore illegal.
Any member of the investing public dealing with the entity is doing so at his/her own risk.
