Lauretta Onochie, aide to President Muhammadu Buhari on Social Media, have asked Chief Allen Onyema, CEO of Air Peace Airline to return to the United State of America to face those who indicted him for money laundering.
It could be recalled that the US Attorney General’s office in Georgia had in a press release alleged that Onyema along with his airline’s Chief of Administration and Finance, Ejiroghene Eghagha, had been charged to court for falsifying documents and money laundering.
Both were accused of moving more than $20 million from Nigeria through US banks in a scheme “involving false documents based on the purchase of airplanes,” the US indictment said.
Onochie, who through her post said President Buhari has no hands in the travails of Chief Allen Onyema said “American laws go after those who BREAK them”, therefore, Onyema should go and clarify his name.

1. I do not understand what Pres. @MBuhari has to do with Mr. Onyema of Air peace being indicted and charged in the USA.
According to our Attorney General, the Fed. Govt. has not even been informed of the situation.
American laws go after those who BREAK them
What a man sows….
2. How much has Nigeria invested in the Niger Delta Amnesty Programme, NDDC & 13% derivation funds? All, mostly in a black hole Do we know the extent of poverty, ignorance & disease in the Niger Delta? Please let America too help us see how Niger Delta underdeveloped Niger Delta
3. Those of us from the Niger Delta who are the direct beneficiaries of the sufferings that emanated from the looting of our wealth, will tackle them. It’s our war that is being fought. Laws, Nigerian or American, go after those who break them so we must mind our business. QED!
4. We are smarter now than ever before. Gradually, the scales of tribalism, religious affinity and political loyalty, are falling off our eyes and being replaced by Nigerianism. ��Nigerians are not keen on tales by the moonlight. Let him Return to America and face his accusers!
