Air Peace fraud: Allen Onyema charged for fraud – Nigerians react:

From Adebayo Akintunde:

This one loud o. Falsifying documents. 🙆🙆🙆 | CEO of Nigerian airline, Air Peace, Allen Onyema, has been indicted for bank fraud and money laundering.

From Ayo Bankole:

Just when we are still celebrating our darling Allen Onyema, after his heroic rescue of Nigerians from Xenophobic South Africa, US Dept of Justice releases a damning report on allegations of fraud & money laundering totalling $20m by Air Peace CEO. Urrgh!

From Gotti:

So Air Peace was built on fraud money!? Maaaadt! This Naija ehn both old n young dey do fraud. All those big offices n cars could just be a front for fraud.

From Akin Oyebode:

This reads like a pretty basic money laundering gig. DoJ is accusing him of setting up a phoney company (Springfield Aviation LLC) to receive money in the US and move it around, under the pretext of selling planes to Air Peace. Wild, but very basic.

Wonder where the alleged money came from. But that’s an easy scam to scatter. Buying planes from a company that has no history of dealing with airlines before you must raise some eyebrows. Anyway, gone with the wind. End.

From Toyin Fab:

Read again. Beginning in 2010. E don tey no be today. It’s very possible setting up Air peace was just to provide a front for the main business which is money laundering.

From Dr Kester Ozere:

Mehn!… I have read that write up from DOJ, Georgia against Allen Onyema, CEO AirPeace.

They’re deep!

The US DOJs don’t just write… Their write ups most times are product of detailed investigations.

I hope he survives this… 🤔
