The CEO of Air Peace, Allen Onyema has said that the allegations of bank and money laundering which were leveled against him by the United States Justice department are not true.
Allen Onyema was on Saturday, the 23rd of November 2019, accused of money laundering for 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 USDJ also stated on Friday that Onyema’s chief of Administration and finance, Ejiroghene Eghagha has also been accused of bank fraud and committing aggravated identity theft in connection with the scheme.
But Mr. Allen Onyema has on Saturday, in a brief statement Saud, that all the accusations, “are false and are in no way in line with my character as a person and as a businessman.”
According to him, all the transfer for the purchase of the aircraft passed through the Central Bank of Nigeria. He said his lawyers are at work to refute the accusation.
