There was wide jubilation at the Court of Appeal Lagos division today when the former Director General of Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, NIMASA, Temisan Omateseye was discharged and acquitted.
He was convicted on a 27- count charge bordering on bid rigging and contract splitting by a Federal High Court in Lagos on May 20, 2016.
The Presiding Judge, Justice ‎Yargata Nimpar set aside the lower court judgement because the trial court did not properly evaluate the evidence.
