Former Director-General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, Raymond Omatseye 

A Court of Appeal sitting in Lagos state has overturned the judgment of the Federal High Court in Lagos which convicted a former Director-General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, Raymond Omatseye, and sentenced him to five years imprisonment.

Omatseye was on June 6, 2016, convicted by Justice Rita Ofili-Ajumogobia of 24 out of the 27 counts pressed against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission. She sentenced him to five years imprisonment without an option of a fine.

Angered by the ruling, Omatseye, proceeded on appeal, with his lawyer, Mr. Olusina Sofola (SAN), describing Justice Ofili-Ajumogobia’s judgment as unreasonable and urged the appellate court to overturn it.

In a judgment on Thursday, the Court of Appeal agreed with Sofola and overturned Omatseye’s conviction.
