Former NIMASA boss Raymond Omatseye sentenced to 5 years imprisonment for N1.5bn contract scam

The Federal High Court sitting in Lagos has sentenced a former Director-General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration Safety Agency, Raymond Temisan Omatseye, to five years in prison over a N1.5bn contract scam. Omatseye was arraigned before the court today May 20 on a 27-count charge bordering on alleged contract variation, bid rigging and awarding contract above his approval limit while he was in office.



Omatseye is accused of approving contract above the threshold level of the agency. He was also convicted for bid rigging. Omatseye is also alleged to have warded contracts to company that was the highest bidder and not those pre-qualified for a contract.

Just 5years for 1.5billin? I hope it also comes with a warning for him never to take part in any political activity or public office in Nigeria. This pdp man Bode spent 2 years came out to a rousing party by his foolish group and still claims to be head of pdp in Lagos. Shame is dead.

Rotime Amachi is still working free why?👎

The Report in Vanguard stated that he was arraigned since 2010...No one gets arraigned and sentenced same day. Linda, get some legal editors. Many young lawyers out there, broke.

Are you related!? Where do you know him from? How have you arrived at the conclusion that he's innocent? Is he your tribesman?
