The CEO of Air peace, Allen Onyema is presently trending on twitter.


Air Peace Chairman, Allen Onyema, was yesterday Indicted for Bank Fraud and Money Laundering In America.


Allen Ifechukwu Athan Onyema, the Chairman, CEO, and founder of Air Peace, a Nigerian airline, faces a bank fraud charge and money laundering allegations.


It involves moving more than $20 million from Nigeria through United States bank accounts in a scheme involving false documents based on the purchase of airplanes.

The international airline’s Chief of Administration and Finance, Ejiroghene Eghagha, also faces the same bank fraud charge and alegation of committing aggravated identity theft in connection with the scheme.


Robert J. Murphy, the Special Agent in Charge of Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), Atlanta Field Division, commented on the indictment below:

“Allen Onyema’s status as a wealthy businessman turned out to be a fraud.He corrupted the U.S. banking system, but his trail of deceit and trickery came to a skidding halt.DEA would like to thank the many law enforcement partners and the subsequent prosecution by the U.S. Attorney’s Office who aided in making this investigation a success.”


Nigerians are presently tweeting about the arrest of the Air Peace boss as many see it as witch-hunting.


This is because, during the September Xenophobic attack on Nigerians In South Africa, Air Peace under the instruction of its Chairman Allen Onyema airlifted 189 Nigerians in South Africa for free.


This action as of then was seen as laudable with the House of Representatives suggesting that he be given a National Honour for his kind gesture.
